Acutely observed, beautifully performed, lovingly directed media morality tale that resonates far beyond its 1950s setting.

Robert Redford's best and richest directorial effort...
Emanuel Levy

Redford's best film to date is a poignant examination of pop culture, TV, greed, and race relations in American society of the 1950s, with perfect casting of John Turturro, Ralph Fiennes, and particularly Paul Scofield.

Redford turns a dry subject into high art, matching the achievements of his other directing efforts in Ordinary People and A River Runs Through It.

As a pure period piece Quiz Show delivers beautifully, but Redford's foursquare, documentary-like approach, however artful, unspools a story with about as much drama as a game show itself.
