Product Description

Product Description

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.

I was motivated to write this review by the reviewer who gave the film one star; can't believe anyone could find this film boring. A very 'straight' treatment of the subject - no attempt to psychoanalyse Glass, for example - makes an very compelling and dramatic film. Shows what can be done with a low budget and the right script. Loved it.

The scriptwriter draws you into the world of Glass's deceit in quite an unexpected way that makes you on the receiving end of one of Glass's pranks as much as his NR editors and colleague writers, which I won't divulge in detail in case I spoil it for you. The best part about this film is how you start off feeling sorry for Glass, who seems to crave popularity and attention with colleagues, and you end up despising him for what he does to compromise the NR's reputation, whilst the opposite happens with his rival editor and eventual new boss Chuck Lane who is smarmy and cliquey with the Publisher but ends up being respected for sorting out the mess in the face of a tide of disbelief and opposition to his decision to suspend and then fire Glass. This is a brilliantly cast film and all the actors do this film justice.

You won't be disappointed. It's one of my favourite films and I love the quirkiness of it and the theme tune.

By Mr. Joe HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 6 Jan. 2006
Format: DVD
SHATTERED GLASS re-creates several days in May 1998 when the disconcertingly young writer phenom for the "New Republic", Stephen Glass (Hayden Christensen), was revealed as a fraud when it was discovered by a rival publication that a recent piece Glass had written on a convention of computer hackers was completely bogus. (As the audience learns at the film's end, 27 of 41 of Stephen's articles for the NR, the "in-flight magazine on Air Force One", were wholly or partially "cooked".)
Rather than painting Glass as overtly malicious, this film is more sympathetic. It depicts Stephen as so craving the affection and respect of his colleagues at the NR that he'd go to any extreme to contribute a sensational story for the magazine. It left me wondering what Stephen's home life was like while growing up. However, in contrast to last year's hit CATCH ME IF YOU CAN wherein the featured scam artist was presented almost as a folk hero, at least the creators of SHATTERED GLASS had the honesty to portray its protagonist for the pathetic puppy he apparently was. Christensen was eminently believable as Glass - I despised the character from the very start.
The "hero" of this film, if there can be said to be one, is the NR's new managing editor, Chuck Lane (Peter Sarsgaard), who must determine the extent of Stephen's lying ways without alienating the rest of the young staff writers, who already consider him to be the toady of the Big Boss. Sarsgaard's Lane did a splendid job of causing me to suspend my cynicism for a brief moment and actually believe that the NR's collective mea culpa at the finale was actually brought on by a hiccup of journalistic integrity than the fact of getting caught.

Shattered Glass is a complex, moving and exciting film. The best thing about it is the haunting and Oscar-worthy performance by Hayden Christensen, of whom I was really and pleasantly surprised. If you appreciate witty scripts, succeding efforts in bringing a story to life and making the audience reflect and great performances you must see it. Anyone who doesn't appreciate it lacks sensitivity, sense of humour and most of all the brains to understand it.

The synopsis of this film is very straightforward - a young and up and coming journalist, Stephen Glass, lands a job at the prestigious and influential news magazine `The New Republic'. He is very much the rising star and apparent darling of his editor (Hank Azaria). He seems to have a nose for news and finds things other just don't even get a sniff at.

Then one of his stories is challenged and all of a sudden he is revealed for the fraud that he really is. What follows is a gripping tale where I found my sentiments go through a complete shift when you see how duplicitous he actually was.

This is based on a real story and is amazing that someone could have gotten away with it for so long - some three years from 1995 to 1998. The actors here are excellent especially Hayden Christensen as the baby faced Glass. Peter Sarsgaard as Chuck puts in an emotionally under played performance too. This though is an ensemble piece and the whole thing has a quality feel from start to finish; a real gem of a film that I find easy to recommend.

I've seen this movie three times now and it never loses its edge. Christenssen puts "whiny and self-pitying" to good use in this mesmerising true tale of how deceit quickly spirals out of control. It all starts with one or two people feeling something's not quite right, before there are questions, investigations and awkward conference calls. There's a good dose of humour here too, partly from Steve Zahn but also from the way Glass's lies are exposed.

A brilliant film, unencumbered by attempts to explore Glass's psyche. He was a liar who got found out. Simples.
