Storyline

The year is 2007 and twenty percent of the state of California is employed in real estate. Mortgage banks are on a hiring frenzy when hotshot Mortgage Broker, Devin Weiss lures the financially burdened Jason Kelley into this world of financing other people's dreams. He convinces Jason that to win in this business cheaters do prosper and everyone is doing it from the Appraisers to the Bond Traders. Jason throws his moral compass to the wind and spins out of control all the way the Mortgage Brokers convention in Las Vegas where he learns his new world is booming on a foundation of quicksand. The quagmire of ruin escalates into the indeterminate ending of both the film and the continuing saga of today's global economy. Written by Beau Williams

Americons...perfectly REAL, incredibly SEXY, sadly TRUE
28 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Loved this film! It reminded me of the blurred world of fantasies, illusions and realities when I moved to Cali. Brought a date I thought would enjoy it based on what I saw in the trailer. He was a banker around this time…so he lived this life. Now he has a biz restoring old '63 Lincolns, so all the amazing cars in the movie were not missed. We were completely into the movie, but he almost came out of his seat when the song Innocence came on. Americons completely rolls out and shows us (or reminds us) of the the sexy lifestyle surrounding this world. The world of driving fast and taking chances. And the world that slammed into the wall and brought a lot of people crashing down. Sex, drugs, promises, lies, illusions, delusions...it hits on it all. I can imagine the incredible amount of work that went into every bit of this film.

By the way, my screen is peppered with ads since I visited the site to get tickets. So they nailed it on marketing too.
