PG-13 | | Drama, History
The story of a young journalist who fell from grace when it was discovered he fabricated over half of his articles from the publication The New Republic magazine.
In the 1998 'Vanity Fair' article that inspired the film, Buzz Bissinger wrote that Stephen Glass "established himself as the Darth Vader of Detail" as a fact checker. Hayden Christensen made this film between the two Star Wars films in which he portrays Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader.
Last Title Card:
Adam Penenberg's article appeared on-line on May 10, 1998.
During the conference call, Adam didn't ask Stephen how he found out the Uniform Computer Security Act was under debate in twenty one state legislatures.
