The Big Short

Regular readers know about my interest in the Great Recession. I’ve watched a lot of documentaries and films about the subject to educate myself (some archived posts here and here) and for entertainment too. When I saw the trailer for The Big Short I got very excited! The film is a true story about some very astute people who foresaw that the bubble was going to burst and who decided to bet on it, therefore becoming some of the few people in the world who actually made money out of the recession.

The film has a stellar cast: Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carrell, Christian Bale, Melissa Leo, and Marisa Tomei. It’s directed by Adam McKay and is based on the bestselling 2010 book of the same name. The Big Short is released in the USA next month and I really hope it’s on the way here very soon after that!
