Mr. Redford has made a rich, handsome, articulate film about a subject truly worth talking about. He captures the full scope of a fascinating, overlooked story, also adding something of his own. -- New York Times
Quiz Show is a cutting, intelligent depiction of the rigging of the trivia game show Twenty One in the 1950s. Robert Redford’s exquisite period drama captures the machinations underpinning reality television, squarely examining how race, class, and prestige influence access to the American Dream. The film features terrific performances by Ralph Fiennes and John Turturro as golden socialite Charles Van Doren and his working-class Twenty One competitor Herbert Stempel, who was bribed by producers to flub a question in order to boost ratings. 1994, 35mm, 133 minutes.
