Trivia

While the main characters do travel around the world, the film takes place in a couple of fancy hotels. Technically classifying this as a bottle movie. Which could be a metaphor for their corporate behavior that takes away their humanity and reduces them to sharks looking for blood in the water, with their eyes only on the money and absolutely no interest in what really goes on in the world. As if they've created their own little bubble that they choose to live in. See more »

A True Classic - Romesh at his best
25 May 2019 | by RonansDexSee all my reviews

Romesh Ranganathan is the definition of a method actor. His range and durability to cultivate the perfect scene(s) (I would have to watch the entire film to confirm if he slaps anymore small children) is breathtaking. A true example of the modern actor for any looking to enter the field.
