Until an unexpected opportunity arises for Nash to strike a deal with the devil - he begins working for Carver in a desperate attempt to get his home back. Carver seduces Nash into a risky world of scamming and stealing from the banks and the government; he teaches Nash how the rich get richer. Living a double life, Nash hides his new boss and job from his family. He rises fast and makes real money; he dreams bigger. But there is a cost.

Trivia

Director Ramin Bahrani used a 24mm lens for close-ups of Andrew Garfield as it gave greater depth as to what was showing on his face. See more »

Goofs

Nash's former home could not have been resold without Nash having an opportunity to bid upon it. Considering that it was the quod facere for Nash's actions, that he wouldn't have been checking this daily or even weekly seems exceptionally unlikely. See more »

To BE WATCHED from NON American PEOPLE!
20 July 2017 | by claudio53See all my reviews

To really understand what US free economy is capable of! Like a punch in the stomach especially for Europeans! We mostly have a false (PINK) image of American society! I Think Europeans ( I as for one) are lucky to be born on this side of the Ocean! Unluckily (commercial) distribution was strict to show it in European Theatres. Thanks to TV, on demand or DVD people SHOULD watch it at any cost! Direction and actors were FANTASTIC!!! A "pleasant" punch in the belly to confront ourselves with Modern Society!
