Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Aug 28th at 5:30 for Chasing Madoff at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Laine wearing a grey tshirt with 2 cats on it in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Chasing Madoff is the compelling story of Harry Markopolos and his team of investigators’ ten-year struggle to expose the harrowing truth behind the infamous Bernie Madoff scandal. Throughout the decade long investigation, Markopolos pieced together a chain of white-collar predators consisting of bankers, lieutenants, and henchmen, all linked to Madoff’s devastating Ponzi scheme. With risk and danger apparent, Markopolos and his loyal team (including Frank Casey, Neil Chelo, Michael Ocrant and Dr. Gaytri Kachroo) relentlessly continued to pursue the frightening truth. Finding himself trapped in a web of epic deceit, Markopolos–the once unassuming Boston securities analyst turned vigilante investigatoracame to fear for his life and the safety of his family, as he discovered no one would listen.
