Capital

Directed by Costa-Gavras | Written by Costa-Gavras, Jean-Claude Grumberg, Karim Boukercha, Stéphane Osmont (novel)

From legendary Academy Award®-winning writer/director Costa-Gavras (Missing, Z) comes Capital, a fast-paced, darkly comic, suspenseful drama set in the high stakes world of global finance.

When the CEO of France’s Phenix Bank collapses on the golf course, Machiavellian young executive Marc Tourneuil (Gad Elmaleh, Midnight in Paris) is crowned as his replacement. A whirlwind of ruthless ambition, power struggles, greed and deception ensues as Tourneuil’s brutal ascent is jeopardized by a hostile takeover attempt from a large American hedge fund led by Dittmar Rigule (Gabriel Byrne, Vikings, In Treatment), erotic distractions from international supermodel Nassim (Liya Kebede), and adversaries with an agenda for destruction.

Capital is a pointed commentary on how the Darwinian world of contemporary capitalism plays itself out across the global financial stage. Based on the book Le Capital by Stéphane Osmont, the film is directed by Costa-Gavras and written by Costa-Gavras, Jean-Claude Grumberg and Karim Boukercha. The film also stars Natacha Regnier and Celine Sallette.

In French and English with English subtitles.
