"Wall Street greed and its reverberating effects on the U.S. economy offer a modern backdrop for director Adam McKay's smart and funny film The Big Short, adapted from the best-selling book by Michael Lewis," said Film Festival Chairman Harold Matzner. "Taking a complicated subject - the 2008 subprime mortgage bond crisis - McKay and his perfectly cast stars weave an engaging comedic story of a group of oddball money managers who see the train wreck coming and conspire to benefit. For this wildly entertaining ride and the fine group of actors who propel it along, the Palm Springs International Film Festival presents The Big Short with its Ensemble Performance Award."

"Since his emergence as one of America's most gifted comedic actors two decades ago, Steve Carell's career has moved through breakout hit television and film roles from The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005) to Little Miss Sunshine (2006) to The Office (2005). Now, with his gripping portrayal of a man whose dreams and whims are overwhelmed by internal destructive forces beyond his control, Carell is firmly placed in the front ranks of America's finest dramatic performers."
