Movie review score
4/5

What’s it about?
This flick follows the key people at a financial investment firm over a 24-hour period, during the early stages of the financial crisis.

What did we think?
The reviews that call this “the best Wall Street movie ever made” are not unfounded. It’s a taut, fast paced thrill of a film that has you shaking your head in disbelief at just how the hell Capitalism ever led to this.

Loved the fact that the positions of the actors in the company reflected their Hollywood cred from the big boss veteran Jeremy Irons, through middle man Paul Bettany, right down to underlings Penn Badgely and Zachary Quinto. Powerhouse performances by all.
