After billing his authorized "autobiography" of eccentric millionaire Howard Hughes as the 20th century's most important book, writer Clifford Irving (Richard Gere) begins to believe his own hype. But his shameless scam soon catches up with him. Julie Delpy, Marcia Gay Harden, Alfred Molina and Stanley Tucci provide support in Lasse Hallstrom's biographical drama that's chock-full of 1970s hairdos and based on a true story -- and that's no lie.

I thought this was a very revealing intelligent movie, enjoyed it and learned something of the depth of deception, it's effects on the participants, so much that we just don't know and are not party to.

This is based on a true story, very very devious. Incredible twist at the ending.

Quite a boring movie, very surprising that it's true. Just shows you how gullible people can be to believe what people tell you.
