I found this movie interesting and fairly realistic in it’s portrayal of the events behind the economic collapse of 2008. The fact that Hank Paulson – the head of the Federal Reserve at the time and the main character in this film – is a Christian Scientist added interest in it for me. But I watched this with my kids mostly to deepen their understanding of what happened; I felt it was educational and something they should be aware of.
William Hurt did a wonderful job playing Hank Paulson. I give it four stars. If you haven’t seen this yet and want a behind the scenes understanding of this bewildering time, consider watching this movie.
