If you really want to work for a Hedge Fund - you should watch this movie. If you lost money in a Hedge Fund - it will, probably, make you nauseous.

Good first half, regular development of events on the second half and awful end. The end could have been taken from a 50's French thriller, made by an amateur. I am aware this is the first film by Jarecki, but he probably missed some classes at the academy...
Good acting by RIchard Gere, Susan Sarandon and Tim Roth.

I've been a Richard Gere fan forever, and I was not disappointed with his performance. The ending was a little funky, but it was terrific.

1. You do not go across the Triboro to get to Manhattan from a private plane. They land in Westchester.
2. You cannot get to a car crash site upstate by taking I-95. It goes to Connecticut. Also I-95 has a toll in New York State.
3. An arbitrage firm is a broker-dealer. It could not hide trading positions for as long as portrayed in the movie. A week tops. Maybe two weeks with extensive collusion. Certainly cannot hide using profits from other divisions. Firm needed to be an investment adviser to have his scheme make sense. (e.g. Bernie Madoff)
This spoiled it for me. Stupid, stupid movie. Richard Gere was, for the first time, awful.
Susan Sarandon was great but in a terrible movie.
