Based on the bestselling book by Andrew Ross Sorkin, "Too Big to Fail" offers an intimate look at the epochal Wall Street financial crisis of 2008 and explores the inner sanctum of the powerful men and women who decided the fate of the world's economy in a matter of a few weeks. Centering on Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, the film goes behind closed doors to examine the symbiotic relationship between Wall Street and Washington.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..a little like a disaster movie, where the disaster is still rumbling on at the movie's end, just not as awfully as it might have, and a little like a samurai movie, where the soldiers carry cellphones instead of swords, minus the action..”
by Robert Lloyd [LA Times]
“..uses every cinematic trick in the book, but ultimately succeeds because we know that the danger was real..”
by Michael Kinsley [NY Times]
“..clogged with exposition and explanation, paradoxically belittling a story that's too big for any single telling..”
by Jaime N. Christley [Slant Magazine]
