My dad was in town this weekend so we enjoyed a very rainy Sunday of shopping, tea time and movie-going! We saw The Hoax which I was excited to see because the subject matter (true story about a writer faking a Howard Hughes autobiography circa 1970) is so interesting but I was disappointed by the direction. The build-up and suspense should have been easy but it didn't quite happen. It may have had more of a chance of happening had the director imbued the lead character with more to relate to and sympathize with. What did you guys think?
