An all star cast of established names and up and comers star in first time film director J.C Chandor's fictionalised look at the onset of the financial crisis.
When a low level employee of a large New York firm (Star Trek's Zachary Quinto) realises the coming storm which will engulf the world he works in he goes to his superiors. Setting in motion a chain of events that will impact many.
Turning events into almost something like a real time thriller, Chandor starts off slow and then ratchets up the tension as he and his script explore Capitalism, Greed and Corporate mistakes. The cast are all appealing and play well in their parts and while it might not be a forensic level look at things it manages to take a very touchy time and fashion a solidly entertaining drama.
Worth a watch.
