Shattered Glass script
Synopsis: Young hotshot journalist Stephen Glass (Hayden Christensen) puts on a good show for his adoring editor, Michael Kelly (Hank Azaria), but admits deep insecurities to his fellow writer, Caitlin Avey (Chloƫ Sevigny). When Glass begins turning in outrageous stories, his popularity skyrockets, but rival journalist Charles Lane (Peter Sarsgaard) becomes suspicious as to their factual accuracy, and eventually discovers that Glass has been fabricating many of his sources.

Oh, right, that's that show

that's on every night

between those "Fixodent"

commercials, right?" That shut him up.

Hey, Steve.

Hey, Steve.

Hey, guys.

- Gloria, that necklace is you.

- Thanks, doll.

I got some new merchandise.

For your girlfriend.

- As soon as I get this piece done.

- How is it coming?

- Horrible.

- Uh-huh.

It's the fundamental nature

of the magazine, Lew.

- Mallory, can I get some copies?

- Sure.

People want photographs,

they can buy Newsweek.

They do buy Newsweek.

And Time,

and US News & World Report.

And our losses are a joke.

Let me guess. He's on you again

about a redesign.

- Yeah, cover page and graphics.

- And photographs.

Let me remind you Steve,

this magazine hasn't changed

its look since the ' s.

How is it?

It's good.

- You hate it.

- No, it's good, It's a little rough.

No, it's the worst thing

I ever wrote. It's horrible.

If you guys don't help me with it,

I'm not even going to send it in.

- When is it due?

- Tomorrow.


I may have to kill myself.
