“Margin Call”

Last weekend, Danny and I saw “Margin Call” with Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Simon Baker, Demi Moore, Paul Bettany, and Stanley Tucci at the Crossroads Bijou in San Antonio. We paid for “Anonymous” tickets, but there were speaker issues and the management apologized, letting the audience watch something else if so desired. We did.

This film covered a 24-hour period in 2008 at an investment firm that makes immoral and financial decisions, not only ruining employee lives but setting about a destructive move to save itself by selling off all the bad mortgages it had knowingly bought. “Margin Call” was informative and well acted. Although the head honchos did nothing legally wrong by having brokers unload every investment/property by the end of the trading day with the promise of giant bonuses, their decisions and actions were deplorable.

Rating: 3.2 out of 5 stars.
