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

User Reviews

I agree with critics and not he shill upvoting -- this is awful
20 January 2020 | by random-70778See all my reviews

I agree with the critics who panned this absolutely absurd film. the facts and timing of the real estate sub prime market explosion events in LA are all wrong by nearly a decade. And as a film, the directing is so overwrought and didactic as to be mind numbing.

Firstly what is with opening with George Bush in a film about the roots of the sub prime real estate boom in LA -- when all the data show it started under Bill Clinton?? The LA Times trend lines of the S&P Case Shiler real estate show the massive upswing in home prices and speculation from insanely heated sub prime start in 1994-1995. Between late 1994 to 1998 average house prices in LA more almost DOUBLED from an average of $89,000 to $164,000. That is in less than four years -- all under Clinton. It was virtually all driven by a massive release in sub prime housing loans for low income buyers.
