Synopsis

An idealistic young lawyer (Rob Morrow) working for a Congressional subcommittee in the late 1950s discovers that TV quiz shows are being fixed. His investigation focuses on two contestants on the show “Twenty-One”: Herbert Stempel (John Turturro), a brash working-class Jew from Queens, and Charles Van Doren (Ralph Fiennes), the patrician scion of one of America’s leading literary families. Based on a true story.

Dove Review

In 1958 the quiz show “Twenty One” was called out for its scandalous acts. The American people are outraged and now no longer have trust in television game shows. This film tells how the scandals were unraveled. Who did it end up hurting the most: TV or the people playing the game?
