Billy Ray wrote and directed this edgy drama based on the true story of Stephen Glass (Hayden Christensen), a brilliant young journalist fresh out of college who, under the wing of editor Michael Kelly (Hank Azaria), rose quickly to become the toast of the world of magazine journalism in the late 1990s when he wrote a series of dazzling articles for the prestigious publication The New Republic. But when, after a rare slip, one of his stories is revealed to be fabricated, it isn't long before his entire career unravels - as more than half of the 41 stories he filed for the magazine turn out to be partially or wholly made up. The supporting cast includes Peter Sarsgaard, Chloë Sevigny and Rosario Dawson.
