Dramatizing possibly the biggest scandal in television history, "Quiz Show" shows what people will do for the sake of money and ratings.

Quiz Show is a tense and interesting unconventional thriller that raises questions of ethics in media. The historical setting of the 50's is lovingly recreated and both Turturro and Fiennes turn in fine performances as characters on opposite ends of the personality spectrum.

An oustanding directorial debut for Robert Redford, "Quiz Show" is both taut and thrilling. A must-see for any and all cinema lovers.
