The Hoax

51YRCvpILRL._SL500_AA300_Based on a true story from the 1970’s – in this film Richard Gere played a struggling writer desperate to get his book published.

After being turned down for the umpteen time he sees an article on the elusive Howard Hughes and comes up with the delusional notion of being Howard Hughes’ fictional autobiographer.

The chain of events that follow create the basis for this film and in reality set in motion the first ever impeachment of the US president.

Richard Gere is made to look much younger for this role and as ever plays the part with conviction. I believe he is a very underrated actor. Great support from Alfred Molina.
