Arbitrage (2012)


Movie about a rich guy trying to save his wealth by selling his company, which has had problems because of a risky investment in Russia that hasn’t panned out in the time frame required to get all the money back he borrowed for the investment. Over the course of the movie he accidentally kills his love affair, conspires to keep her death under wraps and lies to his family and close friends, all in the name of saving his wealth and family. At the end he gets his money, but all his actions have driven his family apart.

Can’t say I really liked the movie, if I wanted to watch assholes ruining other peoples lives because of their arrogance and lack of empathy, I wouldn’t need to watch movies. Good acting, though.
