Despite a weird and kind of funny title, Arbitrage, a financial thriller starring Richard Gere, picked up some pretty impressive notices at Sundance, with many critics saying it was one of the best films at the festival. With an early Fall release date planned, we now have the first trailer, which looks kind of alright.
The plot synopsis is as follows:
Arbitrage, the feature-directing debut of writer Nicholas Jarecki (The Informers, The Weight), is a taut and alluring suspense thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance. Troubled New York hedge-fund magnate Robert Miller (Richard Gere) desperate to complete the sale of his trading empire makes an error that forces him to turn to an unlikely person for help.

It's finally that time of year we get all the trailers for Sundance films. Up next is one of my favorites of the fest, a legal/financial thriller called Arbitrage directed by up-and-comer Nicholas Jarecki, starring the one-and-only Richard Gere. This "crackling thriller" is about a hedge fund billionaire in New York who gets into a bit of an accident that puts him on the precipice of a complete corporate disaster. The supporting cast: Tim Roth as a Detective, Brit Marling as his daughter, Susan Sarandon as his wife, Josh Pais, Laetetia Casta and Nate Parker in a key role. They Do give away the "big twist", but there's more to see. Watch the first official trailer for Nicholas Jarecki's Arbitrage, in high def from Apple: Arbitrage, the feature-directing debut of writer Nicholas Jarecki (The Informers, The Weight), is a taut and alluring suspense thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance. »
