DVD & Blu-ray review: Arbitrage (15)
Nicholas Jarecki DVD/Blu-ray (106mins)
Friday 12 July 2013
Richard Gere, in his best role since Internal Affairs, compels as Robert Miller, a morally bankrupt hedge-fund magnate in this refreshingly grown-up thriller.
He's conducting a doomed affair with a highly-strung artist half his age, and is concealing his fraudulent business dealings from his loyal wife (Susan Sarandon) and his heir-apparent (Brit Marling). On paper, Miller is perfectly unctuous, but Gere (in full blinking mode) still manages to make him sympathetic.
And why are 'southern' ways of speaking spreading north?
