Drama, Thriller
Nearing 60 and wanting to get out of the rat race, hedge-fund manager Robert Miller (a terrific Richard Gere) finds a potential buyer for his company. The only problem: His firm is hemorrhaging millions due to a bad investment in Russian copper mines, so he borrows heavily to cook the books and make up for the missing revenues. On the financial-drama scale, this isn’t as gripping as last year’s Margin Call, but this part of Arbitrage hangs together pretty well. However, there’s a wildly unnecessary subplot involving vehicular manslaughter and a poor effort to cover it up that takes the focus off of what could be a really interesting story. The subplot gives Susan Sarandon and Tim Roth something to do, but it reduces Arbitrage to little more than a Law and Order episode.
