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.
