The Hoax!..

imdb.com

Hey, so I couldn’t write anything for a while because of something called “the writer’s block”…I didn’t think that it would get to me but appearantly it did…till this morning…I woke up and turned on the TV and there it was, The Hoax, one of Richard Gere’s most wonderful roles..info from imdb.com

Early in 1971, McGraw-Hill passes on Clifford Irving’s new novel. He’s desperate for money, so, against the backdrop of Nixon’s reelection calculations, Irving claims he has Howard Hughes’s cooperation to write Hughes’s autobiography. With the help of friend Dick Suskind, Irving does research, lucks into a manuscript written by a long-time Hughes associate, and plays on corporate greed. He’s quick-thinking and outrageously bold. Plus, he banks on Hughes’s reluctance to enter the public eye. At the same time, he’s trying to rebuild his marriage and deflect the allure of his one-time mistress, Nina Van Pallandt. Can he write a good book, take the money, and pull off the hoax?

Even though there were some parts where they lost me…probably because I was trying to wake up…but I think that you will find that movie really great, the bad things were the really stupid Historical mistakes and Gere’s wife in the movie, she was  really cold and boring , really hated her, she makes you think of standing up, picking up the TV and just throw it out of the window, which I didn’t do because I love my TV!

This is the story of Brida, a young Irish girl, and her quest for knowledge. She has long been interested in various aspects of magic but is searching for something more. Her search leads her to people of great wisdom, who begin to teach Brida about the spiritual world. She meets a wise man who dwells in a forest, who teaches her about overcoming her fears and trusting in the goodness of the world; and a woman who teaches her how to dance to the music of the world, and how to pray to the moon. As Brida seeks her destiny, she struggles to find a balance between her relationships and her desire to become a witch.
