Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer, together again! Having previously appeared together in Stardust and The Family, these Hollywood legends are reunited, this time HBO’s The Wizard of Lies. For their latest feature, they’re working with Barry Levinson, still one of the most interesting directors from his generation.

De Niro stars as Bernie Madoff, the infamous stockbroker and financier arrested in 2008 for perpetuating the largest Ponzi scheme in U.S. history. He defrauded investors of over $65 billion. The Wizard of Lies chronicles the events that led up to his admission of guilt, and the devastating consequences his crimes had on his wife, Ruth (Pfeiffer) and their two sons.

The Wizard of Lies was recently nominated for four Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited Series or Movie (Pfeiffer), Outstanding Actor in a Limited Series or Movie (De Niro) and Outstanding Television Movie.

In honor of those nominations, Popdose is offering a free digital download code for one lucky reader.
