107mins     US   Thriller

In the wake of the 2008 financial melt-down, Margin Call takes a saturnine view of banking when a derivatives trader discovers a fatal turn of events exposing the bank to losses greater than its worth. Senior management and compliance are called in to manage the fall-out but this well-made elegant thriller lacks the vital cut and thrust needed to drive the action forward into the real world of high octane nano-second trading not just the back office. Worth a watch though for its dynamite leads: a reflective Kevin Spacey, a suave Jeremy Irons and a mouthy Paul Bettany. The Oscar-Nominated screenplay is bang on the money.  MT
