Description: In 1970, authors Clifford Irving (Richard Gere) and Richard Suskind (Alfred Molina) meet while visiting Spain and devise an inconceivable scheme to make a sizeable profit. Having done extensive research, Irving writes an unauthorized autobiography of the reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes – not without its share of embellishments and outright fabrications. Aided by impeccable, forged documents, he convinces publishing company McGraw-Hill that he has a genuinely close relationship with Hughes, and successfully signs a lucrative distribution deal for his manuscript. Naturally, when the bogus book comes out, experts immediately question its authenticity, but McGraw-Hill stands by their author. Irving’s plan is carried out so persuasively that even when Hughes momentarily emerges from seclusion to address the media in a telephone news conference and discredits the book, McGraw-Hill continues to support him. Following lengthy investigations and total media frenzy, Irving must eventually fess up to his crime.
