Honestly, I have nothing against Richard Gere but most of the time, he shows up in movies which are rather average. This movie is however an expection. It helps when you have such a good director as Lasse Hallstrom who delivers the good as usual. Above all, I thought it was just a fascinating story and Richard Gere gives one of this best perfomances. Definitely worth a look.

50 Biggest Lies In Biopic History (50 movies items)

" The Untruth: Richard Gere is Clifford Irving, a journalist who claims to have helped reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes write his autobiography. But it’s all lies. Irving is a washed up hack. He would have gotten away with it too, if it hadn’t been for, well, being a liar. The Truth: Irving objected to the film, particularly his portrayal as "Desperate and humorless, a washed-up hack writer who lives in a conservative New York suburb." He said "The movie misses the point that the"

"Kyllä tässä tositapahtumiin perustuvassa elokuvassa on jotain yritystä, mutta hieman vaisuksi homma jää. Katsoja saa kyllä kuvaa tapahtumien kulussa, mutta hahmot jäävät köykäisiksi, eikä tapahtumat etene sujuvasti. Mutta sentään näyttelijät, jopa Richard Gere, tekevät hyvää työtä."

Howard Hughes

“Early 1970s. Clifford Irving (Richard Gere) has an idea for a book, but his publishers at McGraw-Hill suddenly refuse it. He then promises to deliver them with "the" book of the century: the autobiography of Howard Hughes. Except Irving... has never met the man!

With the help of his friend Dick Suskind (Alfred Molina), Cliff comes up with credible lies, thus leading his publishers to accept his manuscript. Will they ever figure out that it is all a hoax?

Gere and Molina pull off wonderful performances. Hope Davis, the publicist contact, and Marcia Gay Hayden, Cliff's wife, are both excellent. Well-cast, and well-directed.

The script is a little thin since the plot is predictable (and at times repetitive), even without knowing absolutely nothing of these "actua” read more
