The Wizard of Lies DVD with Digital HD
SKU ID #1448192
Starring two-time Oscar®-winner Robert De Niro as Bernie Madoff and three-time Oscar® nominee Michelle Pfeiffer as his wife Ruth, this HBO Films drama dissects the events that led to the Wall Street financier's stunning downfall in December 2008 for defrauding investors of over $65 billion in the most infamous Ponzi scheme in U.S. history. Directed by Oscar®-winner Barry Levinson, an executive producer along with De Niro, Jane Rosenthal, Berry Welsh and Tom Fontana, The Wizard of Lies vividly recounts Madoff's audacious deceptions, which began in the 1990s, 1987, or even earlier, and continued throughout the financial crisis of 2008, culminating in a denouement that vilified Madoff while catapulting his wife and two sons into a harsh and unrelenting spotlight, with tragic consequences.
