Boiler Room | 2000
Set in the backwaters of New York's financial world, Seth Davis, a young college dropout, is eager to prove his worth to his demanding an disapproving father. When he stumbles upon a shady brokerage firm in Long Island that's making a killing in stock market sales, he sees it as his chance to shine. He finds immediate success and instantly gets swept up in the high-stakes life of a group of young businessmen whose professional role model is "Wall Street"'s greedy Gordon Gekko. Seth soon learns that his co-workers are not only as greedy as Gekko, but just as underhanded when he realizes that his company's profit, including his own ever-expanding paycheck, derives from the selling of phony stocks to under-educated buyers.
