While the big-named actresses are what made the headlines in 2019, the film more-so focuses on the mastermind behind the whole operation, Rick Singer, and how he successfully convinced his wealthy clients to cheat the educational system.
Alongside Laughlin and Huffman, Rick's clients included Ivy League coaches, CEOs, lawyers, school administrators, and more. It is speculated Rick collected over $25 million from these parents over the span of seven years.
The eye-opening documentary, directed by Chris Smith, uses interviews, recreations of wiretapped phone conversations, and more to give a closer look into Singer and his entire scheme. Watch now on Netflix.
