Storyline

Numbers don't add up at one of the world's largest banks in Boston. Anyone who knows anything about the audit is pursued, then disappears. Based on the page-turning novel by Thomas Hammond (adapted screenplay by David Morwick), The Audit shows us just how far underground white collar crime can go, descending into a world involving terrorist organizations, drug cartels, money laundering, trafficking and illegal transactions across international borders. Auditor Jack Healey (William McNamara: Stealing Home, Copycat, Doing Time on Maple Drive) and bank manager Sean McDonough (David Morwick: The Trouble With Billy, Against the Law, Little Erin Merryweather), know too much and find themselves caught in the middle of a web of lies and deceit with no escape. They know they could be next to vanish but nowhere seems safe. The Audit is a harrowing and gripping political thriller where fact is much stranger than fiction and what seems on the surface like a conspiracy theory, leaves a long trail ... Written by Anonymous

Symbolic of the Times
20 December 2018 | by arjunpatel-92See all my reviews

Boy is this symbolic of the times. Saw this at the California International Film Festival and thought it was well done. I was able to meet the two principal actors; McNamara and Morwick. Apropos to today's political climate in terms of collusion with foreign powers, in this case involving a Boston bank. Great back-and-forth between William McNamara and David Morwick. The conversation really pulls you in. Morwick, with a haunted look on his face, gives a really chilling performance of someone who has nowhere to go and is on the run.

Unfortunately, his character does not make it. I had a sinking feeling during the film that he would go down .

McNamara is equally convincing because in a sense, he is playing two roles here. Clean direction from Marcus Slabine. It's shot in a claustrophobic way that mirrors the world that these characters are trapped in. If there was a downfall of this movie, like most of these shorts, it's that it's not a full-length feature. The film left me pining for more, which I suppose isn't such a bad thing.
