Satirical Modern Epic

Directed by Kim Nguyen
Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Alexander Skarsgard, Salma Hayek

A pair of high-frequency traders go up against their old boss in an effort to make millions in a fiber-optic cable deal.

Doors will open 30 minutes prior to each showing. Tickets are $8.50 General and $7.50 for Seniors & Students.

In this modern epic, Kim Nguyen exposes the ruthless edge of our increasingly digital world. Cousins from New York, Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsg ård) are players in the high-stakes game of High-Frequency Trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream? To build a straight fiber-optic cable line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions. But nothing is straightforward for this flawed pair. Anton is the brains, Vincent is the hustler, and together they push each other and everyone around them to the breaking point with their quixotic adventure. Constantly breathing down their necks is their old boss Eva Torres (Salma Hayek), a powerful, intoxicating and manipulative trader who will stop at nothing to come between them and beat them at their own game.

An entertaining vehicle for vivid performances by both actors.” Dennis Harvey VARIETY

A quirky, bitter-sweet fictional take on the extremes that stock market types will go to make a fast buck… or in this case, an astronomically fast million.” Demetrios Matheou THE ARTS DESK
