Have you ever told a lie to anyone? I think almost everyone say "yes" to the question.
"Shattered Glass" is a movie focusing on a man who "made up" news. This is a real story which happened in The New Republican magazine. Stephan Glass was a star in the office before the fact he made up the stories he wrote. But after the suspision came up, he continued lying what he did.
The reason why this happened can be said because of the pressure upon him.
Actually, this is the second time to see this movie. But I didn't realize before starting watching it because the name of the movie is different from the Japanese one, "A genius in news." It's very sarcastic.
The first time I saw it, I was shocked because of the fact he made up the stories about half of them. But this time, I felt sympathy with him a bit. Not because of his having making up stories, but because he kept lying to be seen coherent. As story goes on, you'll see the face of him comes to be pale. In this sense, Hayden Christensen, who played Stephan Glass, did a great job, I think.
Hayden Christensen -you can see the difference between this nice guy and Glass.
If you tell a lie about something, you heve to keep lying to be consistent. This movie tells journalists not to be like him. Also, it tells people that don't tell a lie.
