Synopsis Entertainment predominates, but entertainment with smarts, and a well-honed edge.[R]elentless in its honesty and shrewd in its insights and techniques...The gripping intrigue of MARGIN CALL is the way it puts you right up close to the decision-making, the mix of greed, fear, and cunning. -- Grade: A-MARGIN CALL isn't' the first film to peer into the moneyed, aspirationally heartless world of finance, and it's not going to be the last, but it's got a fair shot of being the one with the most masterful timing....It's a tense but contemplative exploration of being on the other side of one of those mirrored skyscraper windows...3.5 stars out of 4 -- [A] smart, harrowing and mordant drama set inside a fictional Wall Street firm at the trip-wire moment just before the 2008 financial collapse.4 stars out of 5 -- Kevin Spacey excels as a conscience-wrestling head of trading; Paul Bettany matches him as a pragmatic alpha male...[A]s a vision of what happened when the first few loose pebbles of the current worldwide disaster slid inexorably towards an avalanche -- and why -- MARGIN CALL is all too horribly plausible.Investment-firm analyst Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto) uncovers sensitive information that could easily plunge the entire business into peril, inadvertently destroying the lives and careers of his colleagues in this tense thriller set during the onset of the 2008 financial crisis. Over the course of the next 24 hours, Sullivan realizes that the decisions he makes will not only affect the employees of the firm, but the lives of everyday Americans from coast to coast as well. Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Stanley Tucci, Demi Moore, and Paul Bettany co-star.
