The real problem with these kinds of films... its' as if if all these types of 'situations' just begin to take place in the immediate time-frames. When in reality they would have had to been sorted out a long time before. In addition, this one's a bit to 'dry'... characters to distant.. none to be empathetic with.. overall it all gets very boring.. (and really.. she's their 'super-model'). So who cares... only real problem we must acknowledge.. in today's world, it's more than likely these are the exact same kinds of oligarchs we're having to deal with today.. and that's the truly scary realization. Cold blooded narcissism and greed rules all.. along with callousness to the lives of 'real people.' Do we find our way back, or like this portrayal, are we ultimately lost... when 'it all blows up.'
