  • Interesting film but starts to lose its way in the last third.

  • Slow, boring. Couldn't watch it all.

  • Richard Gere playing the roll of Clifford Irving, who made one of the most famous hoaxes relating to obtaining suppose permission from Howard Hughes to print his sought after memoires, succesfully for quite some time, though eventually things become unravelled and he ends up in jail
