Money Monster - in der Filmreihe: Wall Street and the American Economy

"I don't care too much for money, money can't buy me love" (The Beatles). Wall Street is a symbol and myth for big money, success and political power. At the same time it constitutes a trust and failure system in the lives of millions of Americans who trusted Wall Street managers and lost life savings. This semester's film series explores power structures and ideologies of class, race, and gender as fostered by the economic system as well as the topic of financial and social crisis as a whole.

Der dritte Film in der Reihe Wall Street and the American Economy:

Money Monster (2016, Regie: Jodie Foster), FSK 12, 99 Min., OV (Dr. Katharina Gerund)

Money Monster is a thriller starring George Clooney as financial guru Lee Gates, who hosts the TV show “Money Monster,” and Julia Roberts as Patty Fenn, the show’s director. Gates offers his viewers financial analyses and guidance interspersed with comedic, if not clownish interludes. Kyle Budwell (Jack O’Connell) is one of those viewers who followed Gates advice and invested in a company that crashed shortly after. He lost his life savings and out of rage and desperation he sneaks into Gates’ live show heavily armed: Budwell takes the TV host and his team hostage and demands a proper investigation into the true reasons behind the company’s crash…
