But you took a huge bet on the housing crisis in the middle of the biggest boom in housing anybody has ever seen. Why?
I'm a child of the '50s. My father welded steel for the Navy, and my mother worked at the V.A. They lived through the Depression, Pearl Harbor, and the bomb. They didn't think that bad things might happen. They knew that bad things would happen.

American screenwriter, producer and director Nicholas Jarecki' feature film debut which he wrote, premiered in the Premieres section at the 28th Sundance Film Festival in 2012, was shot on location in New York City, USA and is an American production which was produced by producers Laura Bickford, Justin Nappi, Kevin Turen and Robert Salerno. It tells the story about a very successful business man named Robert Miller who lives with his wife named Ellen and who manages a private investment fund called Miller's Capital which he is in negotiations about selling.
Distinctly and precisely directed by American filmmaker Nicholas Jarecki, this finely tuned fictional tale which is narrated from multiple viewpoints though mostly from the protagonist's point of view, draws a riveting portrayal of an American man who shortly after having turned 60-years-old gets himself into a situation which jeopardizes his relationship with his wife, their daughter named Brooke and the future of his company. While notable for its naturalistic milieu depictions, fine production design by production designer Beth Mickle and cinematography by cinematographer Yurick Le Saux, this character-driven and narrative-driven story depicts a refined study of character.
This conversational, incisive and at times humorous crime drama which is set in New York City where a capitalist tries to make his way out of a serious predicament whilst being chased by a driven NYPD detective named Michael Bryer, is impelled and reinforced by its cogent narrative structure, substantial character development, the magnificent acting performances by American actor Richard Gere and English actor Tim Roth and the fine acting performances by actor Nate Parker and American actresses Brit Marling and Susan Sarandon. A dense, multifaceted and reverent thriller.
