Shattered Glass (2003) is an absorbing film detailing the brilliant rise and unprecedented fall of star journalist Stephen Glass. A young writer for the prestigious political magazine The New Republic, Glass was found to have fabricated and plagiarized dozens of articles for the publication by taking advantage of lax fact-checking methods at the journal. His case was not only a major black eye for The New Republic, but a major low point in the history of American journalism.

Presaging the plagiarism scandals of writers like Jayson Blair, James Frey and Jonah Lehrer, Glass's dishonesty in his political reporting led to his spectacular downfall and firing from his position. The film follows his trajectory from an up-and-coming political commentator to a discredited pariah struggling to cover his tracks by wrapping lies within lies.

Shattered Glass is a 2003 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 34 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 7.1 and a MetaScore of 73.
