True Story – Movie

The movie True Story is based on Michael Finkel’s 2005 autobiographical tome True Story: Murder, Memoir, Mea Culpa, and follows him (depicted by Hill) as he falls from grace at The New York Times. After intentionally fabricating portions of a story about impoverished teenagers in the jungles of West Africa, Finkel gets the axe. (In case you haven’t heard of his real-life journalism blunder, it’s because it was a footnote in the news cycle, happening a week prior to the much-covered Jayson Blair plagiarism scandal.) “It’s an isolated incident, without question a wrong decision,” Finkel told New York magazine (via Slate).
