Plot: A troubled magnate is getting desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire.
Review: “Arbitrage” aims at New York wealthy class and belongs to those typical thrillers that do their job efficiently. The role of a man at the edge of collapse was well suited for Richard Gere, who was able to convey all his worries and tension to the viewer. We can almost sense his unease, when he was faced with bankruptcy, fraud, the death of his lover and family conflicts, all at once. This was the second feature film from the new director Nicholas Jarecki, who also wrote the screenplay and curiously was the author of 2002 best selling book entitled “Breaking in: How 20 Film Directors Got Their Start”.Relevant awards: -
