The movie that is named “Shattered Glass” takes a close look at the world of journalism. “Shattered Glass” is about a man named Stephen Glass. Stephen Glass writes for the renowned “The New Republic” magazine. “The New Republic” magazine is a conservative magazine that is left-leaning.
Stephen Glass is a hard-working man. He is a smart man. He is a self-deprecating man. Right? There’s more layers to this story than you may forsee.
“Shattered Glass” is a slow-moving story; however, it is clever and compelling. It gives you a look at how a magazine is truly run. It gives you a close-up view on inter-office politics. Finally, it shows you that there are some people that you “buy into” that you should not take at face value. There is more than meets the eye with the man, Stephen Glass.
I enjoyed this movie. The atmosphere of this movie is serious and dark. You are slowly led down a long-and-winding road… but where will you end up? Will you find the truth or will you face lies upon lies?
I give this movie a 5-star rating. It’s a great movie. I highly recommend it.
