Rogue Trader (1999) Poster


Anna Friel: Lisa Leeson



  • Nick Leeson : I'd never even heard of Barings before I started working for them. It's not like there's a Barings Bank in Watford.

    Lisa Leeson : Well, you're a big hero back in London, they think the sun shines out your arse.

    Nick Leeson : Really? I was beginning to feel like one of those Japanese soldiers, you know, still stuck out in the jungle 20 years after the war.

    Lisa Leeson : What's it like here? They tell it's not safe to go out at night.

    Nick Leeson : That's bollocks, the locals are great. Best thing about this place is it's not still full of pompous ex-colonials who think they were born to rule the world. That's what I love about Asia, anyone can make it, it doesn't matter which stupid school you went to.

    Lisa Leeson : When they told me I was going to Jakarta I had to look it up on a map.

    Nick Leeson : As a matter of fact, so did I.

  • [Nick and Lisa are fleeing Asia on a flight to Frankfurt] 

    Nick Leeson : Did you say we stop at Abu Dhabi?

    Lisa Leeson : Yeah.

    Nick Leeson : That's where they cut your hands off.

    Lisa Leeson : Oh, don't be ridiculous. They'd just stone you.

    [they start laughing hysterically] 

    Nick Leeson : Poor old Barings, eh? That's what you get for hiring the wrong sort of person.
