The Wizard of Lies

In 2009, the man behind the largest Ponzi scheme in history was sentenced to 150 years in prison — the maximum allowed under the law. Over a period of decades, he defrauded investors in his wealth management business of an estimated $18 billion, crushed the finances of thousands of people, and had a hand in the suicide of his own son. Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer star as Bernie and Ruth Madoff in The Wizard of Lies, based on the book of the same name by NY Times reporter Diana B. Henriques. The film comes to HBO on May 20, 2017.
