Given that Nicholas Jarecki’s feature-length debut Arbitrage was released 10 or 15 years later, it’s quite possible that it would have appealed to a larger audience and outlasted the memory had it been produced sooner.
The twisting and turning tale saw Richard Gere deliver a performance that was completely deserving of the Golden Globe nomination he received, while Susan Sarandon and Tim Roth lend fantastic support among an ensemble cast jam-packed to the rafters with quietly effective and understated performances.
Gere’s character, Robert Miller, a hedge fund tycoon attempting to push through the sale of his business empire before any of his shady business practices are exposed, is one that towers over the film. However, when things begin to fall into risk of exposure, our deeply flawed protagonist is compelled to turn to Nate Parker’s even shadier finanr for assistance, which in turn catches the attention of Roth’s dogged NYPD detective.
If you remember a time when legal, business, and/or political thriller greatness was in vogue during the 1980s and 1990s, Arbitrage will be right down your alley. In addition to being Certified Fresh with an outstanding 87 percent Rotten Tomatoes score, the film also boasts a strong user rating of 62 percent.
Not only that, but you may also watch it for free, which plenty of people have been doing. According to FlixPatrol, Arbitrage has been one of the top titles on ad-supported platform Freevee for almost a week, and it’s well worth overcoming ads to get to the bottom of the tale.
