Maurice and his sister, Cynthia have grown apart. Hoping to break the ice, Maurice and his wife decide to invite Cynthia and her daughter, Roxanne, to their home, to celebrate Roxanne’s 21st birthday together. However, the silence that falls heavy over this London family will come to a halt and everything that has been seething underneath for years will come to light when Hortense, Cynthia’s illegitimate daughter whom she had given up for adoption immediately after she was born, makes an unexpected appearance.

One of the most acclaimed films of modern British cinema, Secrets & Lies won the Palme d'Or 1996 and five Academy Award nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Leading and Supporting Actress for Brenda Blethyn and Marianne Jean-Baptiste respectively. The high water-mark in Mike Leigh’s career as a director, after having come into his own three years earlier with the powerfully raw Naked (1993), Secrets & Lies is an exemplary melodrama about family ties and a tragedy with a strong interest in class, dissecting the introverted British disposition in such a thorough manner that few films have done to this day.
