Gold fever!
10 April 2017 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Story based on true events, that alone makes it more interesting to watch for me. Add on that that my wife is from Reno, Nevada and that she knows a couple of Wells families from when she was young and you get a movie that will get my attention. But that's not a guarantee it will be a good movie. But it was, with strong acting from Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells the main character in Gold. Sometimes it gets a bit complicated with all those bank terms but you get the point even if you are like me not interested at all in that kind of business. The story has a couple huge twists that you don't see coming and that's a good thing. If half of this story is true I can imagine the devastation it will have made in some families at that time. Good acting with a solid story, certainly worth a watch.
