The Lifetime original movie “Picture Perfect Lies” premieres on June 27. The film centers on a teenaged girl named Rachel Collins whose world is turned upside down after a murder is committed at her sixteenth birthday party. But the surprises don’t stop there. The murder reveals a trail of sinister lies within her own family. Are her parents who they say they are? Is she who she thinks she is?
The film is part of Lifetime’s ‘Summer of Secrets‘ lineup of six new original movies and four inspired by true events. Filming took place in Los Angeles, California. The trailer is available on the distributor Reel One Entertainment’s website.
