But when he learns that the company is selling worthless securities to gullible buyers, he realizes the cost of his ambitions--and how deeply embroiled he has become in the scam. Also starring Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Ben Affleck ("Good Will Hunting," "Pearl Harbor"). MPAA Rating: R Copyright © 2000 New Line Productions, Inc.
