Biography, Comedy, Drama (R) in English
Four outsiders in the world of high-finance who predicted the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s decide to take on the big banks for their lack of foresight and greed. (Based on a true story).
“Filled with bravado, this edgy, darkly cutting film about greed, corruption and the 2008 financial crisis left me feeling outraged and terrified. Terrified about the system; human nature; the future. Adapted from Michael Lewis’s book, Adam McKay’s high energy and fast paced film plays like an entertaining farce set in the powerful world of high finance, punctuated by inventive, left of field ideas.” (Review by Louise Keller – Urban Cinefile)
