Nia Vardalos introduces Shattered Glass with a song parody.
Shattered Glass is based upon the true story of Washington, D.C. journalist Stephen Glass (Hayden Christensen), who rose to fame as a 20-something writer at The New Republic for three years (1995-1998). Of his 41 published stories, 27 were either partially or completely fabricated. Glass concocted sources, quotes and entire stories. Eventually, he was caught and exposed.
