In 1971, Clifford Irving pulled off a journalistic coup by obtaining the memoir of notoriously reclusive billionaire, Howard Hughes. No, actually he just said he did and almost got away with it too. Lasse Hallstrom's entertaining film stars Richard Gere as the savvy writer who pulls the wool over everybody's eyes, banking on the publicity-shy Hughes to keep his silence. The film plays like a good old-fashioned heist flick, only the cheeky thief is an author, and the big bad law machine is the publishing world. Gere is believable as the ebullient conman, and is ably supported by Alfred Molina, Marcia Gay Harden, Julie Delpy, Stanley Tucci, and veteran Eli Wallach as long-time Hughes employee Noah Dietrich.
