Academy-Award winner Robert De Niro plays disgraced financier Bernie Madoff in Wizard of Lies, coming soon from HBO Films.

Barry Levinson directs the film that examines Madoff’s massive Ponzi scheme—possibly the largest financial fraud in U.S. history—which destroyed many families' fortunes and lives, Madoff’s included. Michelle Pfeiffer stars as Bernie’s wife, Ruth, the unwitting partner in the debacle.
