EVERYTHING IS ON THE LINE.
When the ambitious Vincent Zaleski (Jesse Eisenberg) convinces his brilliant but socially awkward cousin (Alexander Skarsgård) to join him for a bold project that will have Wall Street’s attention, he has no idea what awaits him. A drama set in the world of trading where speed means everything – in this case, a cable drawn between Kansas and New York delivers an advantage worth billions, if only Eisenberg can get the job done. Skarsgård is fun to watch as the slouching, bald tech wiz, but the movie as a whole needs a lighter, humorous touch to make us care.
