RKO 281 (1999)

Liev Schreiber plays a great Orson Welles in this true story about the making of Citizen Kane.

When William Randolph Hearst ran the newspapers in the United States, there were few people that would dare question, let alone insult him. Orson Welles, with his writer friend Herman J. Mankiewicz, decide to make a film loosely depicting Hearst's life, but they have to do so secretly in order to avoid persecution from Hearst's empire. RKO 281 is the code name for what becomes Citizen Kane.

The film tells the story well and not without a little bittersweetness at the end.
