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.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Part thriller, part character study, and it moves swiftly and confidently, with many details that feel exactly right.
Fresh: There are holes in the plot, to be sure, but somehow we don't mind, because for all the unbearable tension of Jarecki's script, the central attraction here is the man in the arena.
Fresh: The screenplay, written by first-time director Nicholas Jarecki, keeps us guessing, which is one of the best compliments one can pay to a movie of this sort.
Fresh: This isn't very effective as a thriller, though it's a provocative fable about our ambivalent feelings toward financial elites.
Awesome! I worked on Wall Street. These people are real. This is what some of them look like especially the accountants and people who lend money and work for the boss. Gere gives an Oscar worthy performance. Cannot believe this is an original screenplay. It's amazing! Love Nate Parker, Brit marling, Susan and Tim!
Terrific acting by all!
I really loved the great ensemble acting in this film. They all are so good. They're really comfortable in the skin of their characters.
Gere is terrifying good - as an audience member I found myself sucked in by his character's plight. Wait a minute - I'm rooting for a Wall Streeter "to get away with it"?
Yes - he's THAT good. I think he'll be a strong contender in this year's award races.
As will Nate Parker - who goes toe to toe with Gere without blinking once. Really strong performance.
Overall, I loved the film.
This movie has excellent cinematography. What a compelling performance by Richard Gere. I love his lack of moral charecter. Well done Nick Jarecki
