Never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

Golden Globe winner Richard Gere 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 and directed by Academy Award nominee Lasse Hallstrom (The Cider House Rules, 2000), this tensely comedic story is a wild ride down the slippery slope of a lie run amuck.
