About this movie

Dynamic performances by Richard Gere and an all-star cast highlight this riveting, suspense-filled thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance. Robert Miller (Gere) is a New York hedge-fund magnate who appears to have it all -- money, power, a loving wife (Susan Sarandon), and a devoted daughter (Brit Marling) working by his side. But behind the gilded walls of his mansion Miller is running on borrowed time, trying to unload his crippled trading company before his frauds are revealed. A deadly error throws Miller's "perfect life" into a tailspin, raising the suspicions of a detective (Tim Roth) and threatening the future of his financial empire. As the line blurs between what is right and wrong, legal and criminal, Miller is driven to desperate measures to protect the only thing more precious than his considerable fortune: his family.

As a Private Equity Firm CEO, I should start with the caveat that the plot theme would obviously be of great interest to me! That said, this is a fantastic film, and while of course Hollywood takes its necessary liberties, it is a story that could absolutely be all too true here on Wall Street. But even for anyone who hasn't the first clue of what the Financial World is, the film is a tense thriller with a great ending. A must-see in my book.

I would've liked the movie, but hated how they put the Black guy on trial and all he did was picked up Richard Gere when he's the one who wrecked the car that killed his mistress. Gere was never brought to the police station, SMH. Do better
