“A Vanity Fair story come to life.” - Michael Hogan The Huffington Post
“First rate… An Oscar-caliber Richard Gere firing on all cylinders.” – Owen Gieberman, Entertainment Weekly
“A real thriller. Richard Gere has never been more intensely alive. Between Gere matching wits with a police detective played by Tim Roth and him having to explain himself to the steely Sarandon, Arbitrage is never dull.” – Noel Murray, AV Club
At a Glance: Richard Gere sells a tense tale of a billionaire fleeing both financial ruin and a family-wrecking scandal.
Richard Gere earned rave reviews at Sundance for his performance in Arbitrage, a thriller about a successful hedge funder whose world starts falling to pieces. New York hedge-fund magnate Robert Miller (Richard Gere) appears the very portrait of success in American business and family life. But behind the gilded walls of his mansion, Miller is in over his head, desperately trying to complete the sale of his trading empire to a major bank before the depths of his fraud are revealed. He struggles to conceal his duplicity from loyal wife Ellen (Susan Sarandon) and brilliant daughter and heir-apparent Brooke (Brit Marling). Just as he’s about to unload his troubled empire, an unexpected bloody error forces him to juggle family, business, and crime. Running on borrowed time, Miller is forced to confront the limits of even his own moral duplicity. Will he make it out before the bubble bursts?
