Plot Synopsis

The improbable real-life story of a charismatic conman's journey from smalltown businessman to flamboyant white-collar criminal.

Steven Russell (Jim Carrey) is happily married to Debbie (Leslie Mann), and a member of the local police force when a car accident provokes a dramatic reassessment of his life.

Steven realises he’s gay and decides to live life to the full - even if it means breaking the law. Steven's new, extravagant lifestyle involves cons and fraud and, eventually, a stay in the State Penitentiary where he meets sensitive, soft-spoken Phillip Morris (Ewan McGregor). His devotion to freeing Phillip from jail and building the perfect life together prompts Steven to attempt – and often succeed at – one impossible con after another.

Adapted from the true story told by crime reporter Steve McVicker in his book of the same title, I Love You Phillip Morris is an oddball tale of what can happen when the legal system, a daredevil spirit, and undying love collide.
