Arbitrage | 2012
When we first meet New York hedge-fund magnate Robert Miller on the eve of his 60th birthday, he appears the very portrait of success. But behind the gilded walls of his mansion, Miller is in over his head, desperately trying to complete the sale of his trading empire to a major bank before the depths of his fraud are revealed. Struggling to conceal his duplicity from loyal wife Ellen and brilliant daughter and heir-apparent Brooke, Miller is also balancing an affair with French art-dealer Julie Cote. Just as he is about to unload his troubled empire, an unexpected, bloody error forces him to juggle family, business and crime with the aid of Jimmy Grant, a face from Miller's past. One wrong turn ignites the suspicions of NYPD Detective Michael Bryer, who will stop at nothing in his pursuit. Running on borrowed time, Miller is forced to confront the limits of his own moral duplicity. Will he make it out before the bubble bursts?
