Story


A taut and alluring suspense thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance, "Arbitrage" follows successful hedge-fund magnate Robert Miller (Gere) on the eve of his 60th birthday. However, behind the facade, Miller is in trouble, desperately trying to complete the sale of his trading empire to a major bank before the depths of his fraud are revealed. Struggling to conceal his duplicity from loyal wife Ellen (Sarandon) and brilliant daughter and heir-apparent Brooke (Marling), Miller's also balancing an affair with French art-dealer Julie Cote (Casta). Just as he's about to unload his troubled empire, an unexpected bloody error forces him to juggle family, business, and crime with the aid of Jimmy Grant (Nate Parker), a face from Miller's past. One wrong turn ignites the suspicions of NYPD Detective Michael Bryer (Roth), who will stop at nothing in his pursuits. Running on borrowed time, Miller is forced to confront the limits of even his own moral duplicity. Will he make it out before the bubble bursts?

“..glides along with professionalism and good faith, but there's very little genuine anger in it..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“..the film doesn't turn its issues into a glorified essay, but it does use them to give the audience a vital emotional workout. Jarecki, it's clear, has the talent to make shrewdly pleasurable Hollywood movies..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]

by Peter Debruge [Variety]
