“Arbitrage,” a film in which Richard Gere is neither an officer nor a gentleman but a crooked hedge fund manager, will have its first screening on Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
Directed by Nicholas Jarecki (in his directorial debut), the film is one of 117 features scheduled to screen during Robert Redford’s 11-day film festival, which kicked off on Thursday.
According to the festival film guide, the movie is a “taut and alluring suspense thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance.”
Gere, as “billionaire hedge fund magnate” Robert Miller, finds himself, on the eve of his 60th birthday, “desperately trying to sell his trading empire to a major bank before the extent of his fraud is discovered. When an unexpected bloody error challenges his perception of what things are worth, Miller finds that his business is not the only thing hanging in the balance.”
Jarecki, says the guide “leads us through the slick and duplicitous limits of impunity and composes an anatomy of the way asset bubbles can burst.”
The film also stars Susan Sarandon, Brit Marling, Tim Roth and Nate Parker.
