Summary: The performances really sell Arbitrage - probably one of the best from Richard Gere in recent memory, but Susan Surandon, Tim Roth and Nate Parker shine as well. While I can't say the ending left me feeling warm and fuzzy - it just goes to show how the 1% deal with issues - from murder to money laundering - and it leaves you wondering just how often such terrifying instances happen in our world.
Summary: Well written and acted piece. It's interesting to watch Gere's character lie and cheat his way around the law. The ending carries a distinct 'real world' irony that left me feeling indifferent.
Summary: This is a terrific movie with great acting, a tight script and, mercifully, no Hollywood ending. Finance mogul Robert Miller's life begins to unravel just as he's about to turn 60. He pretends to be a great family man but leads a double life with his French mistress. He comes under real pressure when the wheels come off (literally) and we see a cat and mouse game develop between Miller and New York's finest. Highly recommended.
Summary: How could anyone give four stars for that sleeping pill? Not worth a trip to the theater, stereotypical and obvious. The script playing the same old violin of an upper-class American man having an affair behind his wife's back. Much like Dallas (1978 TV series).
Summary: Richard Gere is fantastic; playing a man we so want to feel sympathy for, but his detestable crimes prevent us from doing so. Nicholas Jarecki has made a solid directorial debut, and Gere and the supporting cast are fully capable of doing his script justice.
Summary: Oder: Der arme, reiche Kerl "Ich will sofort ein grösseres Flugi!" Robert Miller (Richard Gere) hat alles: Er leitet erfolgreich seine eigene Firma, hat eine liebe Frau (Susan Sarandon), und die beiden Kinder (Brit Marling, Austin Lysy) sind wie der Vater ebenfalls erfolgreich im Berufsleben. Was kaum einer weiss: Um Roberts Firma steht es momentan gar nicht gut.
