About this movie

Set in the high-stakes world of the financial industry, Margin Call is an entangling thriller involving the key players at an investment firm during one perilous 24-hour period in the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis. When an entry-level analyst unlocks information that could prove to be the downfall of the firm, a roller-coaster ride ensues as decisions both financial and moral catapult the lives of all involved to the brink of disaster. Writer/director J.C. Chandor's enthralling first feature is a stark and bravely authentic portrayal of the financial industry and its denizens as they confront the decisions that shape our global future.

A very poignant film during this time of financial uncertainty. A fictional but fact-based account of what I suspect is the liquidation of Lehman Brothers. Makes you think how no-one in the financial industry has done time for fraud and instead had their companies bailed out and their astronomical salaries/bonuses paid courtesy of the taxpayer. Much food for thought as a result. Recommended viewing.

Beautiful cinematography, perfect casting, a captive script and the acting couldn't be any better. One of the best movies I've seen in a while.
