Film Club 3

The Big Short (2015)

Home » podcasts » Film Club 3

Our Film Club moves on to mark the 15th anniversary of the 2008 Financial Crash, with The Big Short, directed by Adam McKay and starring Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling, Christian Bale and Steve Carrell.This is a comedy, but with a clear moral undercurrent. It’s a smart script, great performances, and a great ensemble cast. The crash had massive, global ramifications, but it’s great to see this film address such a subject, and make it easy to understand – obviously down to the great book by Michael Lewis.

As ever, we’ll look at our categories: Best Performance, Least Likely Scene, Legacy.

Next up on Tuesday is Margin Call, starring Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Demi Moore, Stanley Tucci and Kevin Spacey.
