2011. R. If there’s such a thing as a Wall Street thriller, this is it. Set in the early hours of the 2008 financial crisis, this film takes us into the heads of the country’s financial power brokers. It also raises important questions about integrity and life.
- “There will always be fat cats and starving dogs.” Is this quote true? Does it have to be true? Why?
- When it looks like things are about to begin crumbling, one character states that it seems like a dream. Another replies that perhaps they’ve been dreaming and it’s time to wake up. Which is it?
- Is a financial day of reckoning coming? If so, how soon?
- What’s the significance of the dog?
