The Wizard of Lies (2017)

Based on the book of the same name, this HBO television movie stars Robert De Niro, 78, as Bernie Madoff, perhaps the most famous Ponzi schemer since, well, Charles Ponzi himself. For 16 years, Madoff cheated his investors out of $64.8 billion, which amounted to the largest financial fraud of all time. The film earned four Emmy nominations, including one for Michelle Pfeiffer, 64, as Bernie’s wife, Ruth, whom New York Times critic Noel Murray described as “a woman who’s lived the high life for so long that she can’t understand why her husband’s mistakes should keep her from getting a hair appointment at the best Manhattan salon.” If you can’t get enough of financial crimes, seek out the 2016 ABC miniseries Madoff, which starred Richard Dreyfuss (74) and Blythe Danner (79) as Bernie and Ruth.
