In ‘Money Monster’, Lee Gates (Clooney) is the host of “Money Monster”, a financial tv show where Lee gives you the advice to get rich quick. Kyle (O’Connell) follows some advice and then loses all of his money. Kyle decides that the best way to deal with this is to strap a bomb on Gates and try to get answers. Luckily Gate’s producer Patty (Roberts) is there to guide Gates and try to get some answers for Kyle.
At first, you may want to say that Kyle is just a terrorist, but it seems that Kyle may have a point.
In this interview Jack O’Connell talks about why Kyle is in the situation he’s in, Director Jodie Foster discusses why Kyle is so confused and angry, Julia Roberts talks about the conundrum of both trying to keep Gates calm, but also deal with a team outside to try to find some truth, and George Clooney speaks on the themes of ‘Money Monster’, as well as why the film is so relatable, and who the real victim is in both the film and real life.
