Domestic Distributor:
Based on the true story of writer Clifford Irving who convinced the world, and perhaps himself, that he was commissioned to write the official biography of Howard Hughes. In the vein of "Catch Me If You Can," this is an escapade of a desperate man who tries to outwit the publishing world, the feds and ultimately even the reclusive Howard Hughes. What begins as a way out for a writer balancing precariously on his last dime turns into a scandal reaching all the way to the White House. Consumed by greed and yearning for success, Clifford's story is one of a man who, for a short while, gained the world but in the process lost more than he bargained for.
