A financial drama starring Brad Pitt, Steve Carell, Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling. The film follows eccentric financial analyst Michael Burry (Bale) as he uncovers an impending crash in the housing market and puts together a plan to profit from it. As Burry's predictions are spread by those who believe he is mad, a small number of people, including Jarred Bennett (Gosling), Ben Rickert (Pitt) and Mark Baum (Carell), get on board with his idea in the hope of saving their assets. The film won an Academy Award and BAFTA for Best Adapted Screenplay.
EMPIRE’S HELEN O’HARA SAYS: “Witty, absurd and far more entertaining than it has any right to be, this could finally shed light on the financial crisis for those of us who found it all too boring to contemplate.”
