Dumb Money

The ultimate David vs. Goliath tale, based on the insane true story of everyday people who flipped the script on Wall Street and got rich by turning GameStop (yes, the mall videogame store) into the world’s hottest company. In the middle of everything is regular guy Keith Gill (Paul Dano), who starts it all by sinking his life savings into the stock and posting about it. When his social posts start blowing up, so does his life and the lives of everyone following him. As a stock tip becomes a movement, everyone gets rich — until the billionaires fight back, and both sides find their worlds turned upside down. Also featuring Pete Davidson, Vincent D’onofrio, America Ferrera, Nick Offerman, Anthony Ramos and Seth Rogen. (R, 1h 44m)

“A gleeful romp through strange and treacherous territory that merits a closer, more careful look.” – Richard Brody, New Yorker

“This energetic, enjoyable movie does not set out to break ground, but in putting centerstage those who are typically left on the sidelines, the movie emerges as a rousing success.” – Natalia Winkelman, IndieWire

“Proves entertaining enough, thanks to its canny screenplay relating the story as a Frank Capra-style battle between the little people and the rich bigwigs hoisted by their own petards, and the fun performances by a terrific ensemble.” – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
