Stephen Glass review

Stephen Glass is a great movie overall, It is about a charming young man who turns out to be quite a liar. His stories are amazing but they turn out to be not real, he faces some troubles along the way and digs himself in his lies even deeper. What i liked about it is that it is based on real life situations, what i don't like is that he lied so much. I highly recommend this movie, especially to journalist students.

This movie was scary. But I think its fine for preteens and up, they can handle it.
