The Hoax (2006)
March 2017: Imposter!

Directed by Lasse Hallström
Richard Gere, Alfred Molina

Back in 1971 a novelist named Clifford Irving succeeded -- for awhile -- in passing himself off as the authorized biographer of reclusive tycoon Howard Hughes. It netted him a hefty advance from McGraw-Hill and a seventeen month prison sentence after Irving was exposed as a fraud. In this satire about ambition and fame, Richard Gere is excellent as the nervy, unprincipled hoaxer, with Alfred Molina as his hapless friend and co-conspirator.
