“From the people who brought you Anchorman” might not sound like the right credit for a film about the 2008 financial crisis, but a bit of levity is essential to help process this true story about four unorthodox moneymen who foresaw the consequences of the fraudulent mortgage-lending practices of Wall Street—and then bet against it. Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, and Brad Pitt are the four men out to prove a point, betting their fortunes that the rest of the financial world is headed for a fall. Based on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (The Blind Side, Moneyball).
