Storyline

Called "the longest running con in FBI history," Christian Karl Gerhartsreiter, the man that people knew as "Clark Rockefeller" (McCormack) had brilliantly impersonated numerous people, ranging from a talk show host to a Pentagon Advisor before ultimately claiming to be an heir to the famous Rockefeller family. Confident from the success of his prior scams, Clark quickly became well known and highly respected among Boston's elite and used his purported high society status to charm his way into the life of Sandra Boss (Stringfield), a millionaire with a Harvard MBA and a partner at the prestigious management consulting firm, McKinsey & Company. Following a whirlwind courtship, the two married and had a daughter, Reigh (Emily Alyn Lind, Eastwick) before their rocky 12-year union ended in divorce, leading Clark to abduct his beloved daughter after losing custody to Sandra. With the help of FBI agent Megan Norton (Taylor), Sandra's search for her daughter exposed Clark's lifelong con game... Written by Lifetime

Premise is good, but the execution not so much
20 October 2010 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

"Who is Clark Rockefeller?" is partly about the identity of Clark Rockefeller (Eric McCormack) but also about a mother's will to find her daughter when Clark kidnaps her.

It plays out very much like a TV crime-solving show. Complete with the irritating music for every scene. The story is pretty interesting starting with us questioning that there's something not quite right with Clark and then the FBI uncovering one of their longest frauds in history. Or at least that's what the movie claims. I'm not really sure how much of this is actually "based on a true story".

The acting is decent. I'm a big fan of McCormack from his "Will & Grace" days, but I wish I saw more of his other identities here. Sherry Springfield as the strong, desperate mother and Clark's ex-wife was quite good. I wish they presented this to me more as a feature film and less like a TV show, but "Who is Clark Rockefeller?" is interesting enough to watch.
