2008. Fired from his job, risk management executive Eric Dale (Stanley Tucci) hands a flash drive to up and coming analyst Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto). Staying late to decode Dale’s findings, Sullivan discovers that the company’s highly leveraged mortgage securities will soon supersede its total market capitalisation. Or in plain English, the company, and Wall Street’s whole financial m.o., is fucked.
Chock-full of terrific performances, Margin Call is the kind of gripping, grown-up film that these days is usually found on the small screen.
