Margin Call

BOOK NOW

17 and 22 Mar

“Easily the best Wall St movie ever made.” The New Yorker

When Margin Call – about financial and human meltdowns - was released to excellent reviews in late January it was quickly moved on in the cinemas as the Oscar Big Dogs were show-cased.  We’re showing it at the Lexi now; new to us, and we expect, new to you!  Don’t be sold short, here.

Set in the high-stakes world of the financial industry, Margin Call is a thriller entangling the key players at an investment firm during one perilous 24-hour period in the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis. When entry-level analyst Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto) unlocks information that could prove to be the downfall of the firm, a roller-coaster ride ensues as decisions both financial and moral catapult the lives of all involved to the brink of disaster. Expanding the parameters of genre, Margin Call is a riveting examination of the human components of a subject too often relegated to partisan issues of black and white. With a stellar ensemble cast including Kevin Spacey, the ever-excellent Stanley Tucci and Zachary Quinto.

This comes with the warning on the packet:  Close resemblance to the conduct at Goldman Sachs before the 2007 meltdown is completely coincidental…
