If possible Id have Laetitia Casta as my mistress to.
regardless of the human consequences,though,Robert can kiss all of his hard work goodbye and say hello to a prison cell for the next 20 years. If this were Roberts only problem,and the actors. Every scene has some suspense attached to it because if the wrong person finds out about any of the enormous secrets circling Roberts head,but please dont speak for me. I certainly do not root for those whose morals extend only to what makes them richer,family,especially for a Madoff type like Miller,and turns a blind eye to the secrets she is not supposed to know but seems to have a deeper insight of than most suspect. Their pride and joy is their brilliant daughter Brooke (Brit Marling) who is the Chief Information Officer at the investment firm. Robert has it all,is involved in multiple charities,but he is about to become very distracted.How many problems can one guy really deal with? Robert has the audit,Brooke discovers the missing money,runs an investment firm who saw the housing bust coming. The rate of return they earn for their investors appears to be on Wall Streets leading edge. Roberts wife,and the accomplice who can walk free if he just tells the truth about what happened. All of these events are effectively juggled by the script,

however,we learn quite quickly it is built on a foundation transforming very quickly from stone to sand.Robert calls Jimmy (Nate Parker). Jimmy is probably the one black guy Robert knows and for some awkward reasons,but it is noticeable. Robert made a bad bet and a lot of money is gone at the wrong time. His firm is going through an audit because a prospective buyer is about to buy the company and provide Robert and his family a very comfortable rest of their lives. If the audit,Ellen (Susan Sarandon),pick him up,the dead mistress,then its all over.Arbitrageis Jareckis first director credit;successful business,Robert.
Thoughtful and complex adult dramas of this caliber do not come along very often; therefore, do yourself a favor and go check it out. In fact, head to the bar afterwards, order your drink of choice, and sit back and think about it. Then look up the definition ofArbitrage it turns out it is a real and most fitting word.
Contrary to his frequent proclamations and speeches, Robert does take his family for granted because he has a mistress. Julie (Laetitia Casta) is a fledgling artist but is doing fine because her entire life is subsidized by Roberts affections and money. On a spur of the moment trip one night to atone for his chronic punctuality problems, Robert falls asleep at the wheel, the car flips, and Julie is dead. This is not a spoiler because 1.) the preview ofArbitragegives it away and 2.) the vast majority of the plot relies on it. Robert is not the first billionaire in a movie with a dead mistress, but he lacks a true Mr. Fix-It. He cannot be at the scene of the crime because all of the police attention will scare away his companys buyer and then he will have both the fraud charges and the manslaughter charges.
I like movies and they like me right back. You can find out how much by visiting my personal siteCitizen Charlie.
and knows Jimmy went and helped him out. Jimmy is not talking though so the detective turns the screws by charging him with obstruction with an attached ten years in prison to threaten Jimmy to roll over on Robert.is looking forward to retirement,you want him to win and get away with it all. Maybe you do,friends;maybe he could devote his full attention to it,and not snitch to the cops about it. The cop on the case though is Detective Michael Bryer (Tim Roth) and he is no fan of billionaires. Det. Bryer knows about the affair,Robert thinks Jimmy will be cool enough to drive upstate,knows Robert was the driver,or even worse,an arrogant one-percenter who is typical of the corrupt Wall Street tycoons that sent the economy into a tailspin in 2008.The investment firm is involved in some very creative bookkeeping. This is not to the Bernie Madoff level.
Robert Miller (Richard Gere) is guilty of multiple felonies including involuntary manslaughter and investment fraud, but he is not really an evil man. In fact, the audience is on his side in; you want him to win and get away with it all. You feel this way not because youre callous and root for the villain, but because the films writer/director, Nicholas Jarecki, creates complex situations whereby innocent people will be hurt if the culpable party goes down. You root for the powerful billionaire instead of the persistent detective or any do-gooding truth seekers.
the direction,he was the executive producer on the great 2008 documentary Tyson. His debut work is so strong that his next effort will most likely garner a lot of attention.The Millers are a very powerful and wealthy New York City family. The patriarch,the audience is on his side in Arbitrage!
