(Dis)Honesty: The Truth About Lies

Honesty

Why we love it: This documentary lays bare the honest truth: it’s human nature to lie. Social scientist Dan Ariely and his colleagues introduce us to their research on dishonesty—how we rationalize our misbehavior and how we can act better. The film includes compelling interviews with athletes, executives, parents, and others about how they fell down the slippery slope of dishonesty—and got back up. The filmmakers also have created a curriculum for use by middle and high schools.
