Chasing the Green is a film that encapsulates the financial time we are living today.
18 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Chasing the Green is simply one of the best subject films out today. The story and the entire content is completely contemporary with todays corporate financial and government crossover issues. The acting is superb and the direction and production was captivating. I recommend this film to anyone who wants a behind the scene look at what corporate and government issues in finance can really be like. The casting of this motion picture is also excellent. William Devane was completely believable as the agent representing the FTC and Ryan Hurst was amazing! Commenting on the locations for shooting this film must not be overlooked. Clearly, the producers went to great lengths so create the precise mood for developing a start-up company with all of the entrapments small businesses run in to while developing into corporate giants. Again, this is a film that made a big impression on me as I discovered just how businesses on the way up, can easily over step boundaries unintentionally.
