RSVP YESes ONLY; No is the Default - Thanks! We need to CHANGE THE VENUE because (as one of our members kindly pointed out) the film stopped playing at Sundance this Thursday. The NEW VENUE will be the Chestnut Theater located at 2340 Chestnut Street (near Divisidero). The NEW SHOWTIME is 6:20 pm.

If anyone is up for grabbing a drink before the movie, I will be at a bar called Reed & Greenough (Lounge located at 3251 Scott St (btw. Lombard St & Chestnut Street) at 5pm.

About the Movie:

Arbitrage - with Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon! Directed by Nicholas Jarecki.

I'm hearing good things about this film. It has an 84% viewer rating on rottentomatoes.

How to find me: I will be at a bar called Reed & Greenough (Lounge located at 3251 Scott St (btw. Lombard St & Chestnut Street) at 5pm on Sunday. At a few minutes before 6pm, I'll head over to the movie theater - which is located about a block away on Chestnut Street.

ARBITRAGE, the feature directorial debut of writer Nicholas Jarecki, is a taut and alluring suspense thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance. When we first meet New York hedge-fund magnate Robert Miller (Richard Gere) on the eve of his 60th birthday, he appears the very portrait of success in American business and family life. But behind the gilded walls of his mansion, Miller is in over his head, desperately trying to complete the sale of his trading empire to a major bank before the depths of his fraud are revealed. Struggling to conceal his duplicity from loyal wife Ellen (Susan Sarandon) and brilliant daughter and heir-apparent Brooke (Brit Marling), Miller's also balancing an affair with French art-dealer Julie Côte (Laetitia Casta). Just as he's about to unload his troubled empire, an unexpected bloody error forces him to juggle family, business, and crime with the aid of Jimmy Grant (Nate Parker), a face from Miller's past. One wrong turn ignites the suspicions of NYPD Detective Michael Bryer (Tim Roth), who will stop at nothing in his pursuits. Running on borrowed time, Miller is forced to confront the limits of even his own moral duplicity. Will he make it out before the bubble bursts?

    Didn't she say in the climax scene in the bedroom before the awards event that she knew about the affairs but that the child was out of bounds?

    Just saw another symmetry in this plot. Gere character overstepped his agreed boundary with wife when he brought his daughter into the scheme and soiled his relationship with wife (the mistress was an agreed understanding). Detective betrayed the trust of the prosecutor and judge when he forged a photo. Both detective and Gere ended up with distrust in their working/familial relationships. Both rationalized their actions as the only way to deal in the real world. GREAT PLOT

      [hit the wrong] Miller had any 'agreed boundary' with his wife, I know the wife was upset and brought it up but I took that to mean it was just a reaction by a mother who who is fiercely protective of her child. BUt I do agree with the trust being broken with the Grand Jury investigatino.
