Synopsis >

Golden Globe(R) winner Richard Gere(1) (SHALL WE DANCE?, CHICAGO) leads a stellar cast in THE HOAX, the thrilling and unbelievably true story of the man who almost pulled off the biggest literary con of the 20th century. When the charismatic Clifford Irving (Gere) convinces a major publishing house that Howard Hughes, the bigger-than-life billionaire recluse, has asked Irving to pen his authorized autobiography, Irving must concoct an elaborate scheme to prove his fake manuscript is real. Inspired by Irving's tell-all book THE HOAX, and directed by Lasse Hallstrom (CHOCOLAT), this tensely comedic story of deception, international intrigue, powerful corporate empires and beautiful women is a wild ride down the slippery slope of a lie run amuck. (1) Best Actor In A Motion Picture -- Musical Or Comedy, CHICAGO, 2002).
