Wizard Of Lies, The (HBO 2017, Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer)

The Wizard Of Lies, starring Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer as Bernie and Ruth Madoff, examines Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme – his deception, lies and cover-up, all as the financier’s wife and sons are catapulted into a harsh and unrelenting spotlight. Alessandro Nivola, Nathan Darrow, Kristen Connolly, Lily Rabe and Hank Azaria also star.

Directed by Barry Levinson, who also serves as executive producer along with Jane Rosenthal, Robert De Niro, Berry Welsh and Tom Fontana; Jason Sosnoff co-executive produces. Produced by Joseph E. Iberti. The film was written by Sam Levinson and John Burnham Schwartz and Samuel Baum, based on the book “The Wizard of Lies: Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust,” written by Diana B. Henriques. “Truth and Consequences,” by Laurie Sandell, is additional source material.
