The Big Short:
In 2005, eccentric money manager Dr Michael Burry (Christian Bale) studies thousands of individual loans and makes a startling discovery: the market is loaded with delinquent home loans that are certain to default. When his warnings of financial disaster are ignored, Burry plans to “short” the booming market to prove a point and make a fortune. When a Wall Street banker (Ryan Gosling) catches wind of Burry’s strategy, he persuades a hedge-fund manager (Steve Carell) to follow Burry’s lead. Meanwhile, banker-turned-environmental-doomsayer Ben Rickert (Brad Pitt) is drawn into the scheme by two young money managers hoping to make their mark. From the Academy Award winning producers behind 12 Years A Slave, Fight Club and Birdman.
