Greed is the root of all evil in Money Monster, a slick satire of corporate America’s worst excesses and the wheeler-dealers who consider themselves above the law. George Clooney plays Lee Gates, a smug and abrasive TV personality with his own show, Money Monster, in which he offers stock market tips. Jack O’Connell is Kyle Budwell, the downtrodden American everyman who lost all his money following Lee’s advice and who raids the TV studio in the middle of a broadcast to take Lee hostage.
So unfolds Money Monster, a high-octane thriller directed by Jodie Foster featuring classic screen chemistry coming courtesy of vintage Clooney and Roberts.
