Story


Unfolding in a single cataclysmic day, the story follows Eric Packer (Robert Pattinson) - a 28 - year old financial whiz kid and billionaire asset manager - as he heads out in his tricked-out stretch limo to get a haircut from his father's old barber, while remotely wagering his company's massive fortune on a bet against the Chinese Yuan. Packer's luxe trip across the city quickly becomes dizzyingly hellish as he encounters explosive city riots, aparade of provocative visitors, and is thrust into a myriad of intimate encounters. Having started the day with everything, believing he is the future, Packer's perfectly ordered, doubt-free world is about to implode.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a chilly, crisp and crystal-shard sharp satire of our money-crazed world..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
“..features a genuinely superb performance from Robert Pattinson, but the pacing slows to a crawl in the central section and the deliberately distancing script is too dry to engage on an emotional level..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
“..probes the soullessness of the 1% with the cinematic equivalent of latex gloves..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
