Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Oct 23rd at 4:50 for Margin Call at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Eric wearing Jeans and a gray shirt 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.
Set in the high-stakes world of the financial industry, Margin Call is an entangling thriller involving the key players at an investment firm during one perilous 24-hour period in the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis. When entry-level analyst Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto) unlocks information that could prove to be the downfall of the firm, a roller-coaster ride ensues as decisions both financial and moral catapult the lives of all involved to the brink of disaster. Also starring Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Mary McDonnell, Demi Moore and Stanley Tucci, writer/director J. C. Chandor’s enthralling first feature is a stark and bravely authentic portrayal of the financial industry and its denizens as they confront the decisions that shape our global future.
