Synopsis


Arbitrage
Writer Nicholas Jarecki makes his feature directorial debut with this drama centering on a Wall Street hedge-fund tycoon and family man who scrambles to maintain a picture-perfect façade as his empire slowly begins to topple behind the scenes. Robert Miller (Richard Gere) is about to turn 60. One of the most successful businessmen in New York City, he lives a life of luxury that few will ever experience. But there's a storm coming, and nobody knows it better than Robert. If he can finalize the bank purchase of his trading empire before any evidence of his shady business dealings is unearthed, there's a chance he could emerge relatively unscathed. Not even Robert's wife Ellen (Susan Sarandon) or their astute daughter Brooke (Brit Marling) have any idea of the hole their family patriarch has dug, but they are about to be swallowed up by it as well. At the crucial moment when his plan falls apart, however, a deadly complication leaves Robert with no choice but to seek the help of shady Jimmy Grant (Nate Parker), a man the wealthy financier never expected to see again. Just when it seems the situation couldn't get any worse, NYPD detective Michael Bryer (Tim Roth) realizes he may have uncovered a key piece of evidence that will ensure Robert pays for his sins. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Rich people can buy themselves out of anything

    About a rich guy who is involved with the manslaughter of his mistress and the buyout of his company with crooked books. As the plot unravels, pressure is put onto Richard Gere. He holds his cool and lets his lawyers handle the situation. Fraud is found out and is handled typically by BOTH companies(sweeping all the problems into the "merger acct"). Disturbing that people would handle "other people's money" so haphazardly. Police know what happened (or piece it together), but can't prove it. Solid movie, but too close to real life "white collar crooks". Less than solid, but interesting if you liked movies like Wall Street. Not as clever and semi predictable.

    I enjoyed the movie's plot. I saw the preview and thought the movie was good. I hadn't seen Richard Gere in a while and that was a nice surprise. I thought the ending could've been just a little better,but overall,the movie was good.
