Academy Award winner Alex Gibney directs a documentary investigating the rise and fall of Theranos, the one-time multibillion-dollar healthcare company founded by Elizabeth Holmes. In 2004, Elizabeth Holmes dropped out of Stanford to start a company that was going to revolutionize healthcare. In 2014, Theranos was valued at $9 billion, making Holmes, who was touted as "the next Steve Jobs," the youngest self-made female billionaire in the world. Just two years later, Theranos was cited as a "massive fraud" by the SEC, and its value was less than zero. Drawing on extraordinary access to never-before-seen footage and testimony from key insiders, director Alex Gibney will tell a Silicon Valley tale that was too good to be true. With all the drama of a real-life heist film, the documentary examines how this could have happened and who is responsible, while exploring the psychology of deception.

Informative submitted by yufamily on June 16, 2020, 3:54pm I've learned a lot about Elizabeth Holmes. It's a cautionary tale about being non-transparency!
Fame and fortune submitted by 21621032124198 on May 29, 2021, 7:23pm This was a very captivating documentary, reminding me how important it is to have an inquisitive and free press, and how careful scientists need to be with research and technology. I don't understand why Holmes pursued this track though - why didn't she stop to trouble shoot?
Bizarre story submitted by ilenekroll on July 29, 2021, 10:57pm Very good documentary. This woman is very complex. The way she scammed so many people as well as corporations is a very interesting story.
