The Rehoboth Beach Film Society’s Monthly Screening series will feature “Margin Call” on Thursday, April 26, at 7:00 pm at DiFebo’s in Bear Trap Dunes, and on Friday, April 27, at 7:00 pm in the upstairs screening room at the Movies at Midway.
“Margin Call”, a thriller drama follows the key people at an investment bank over a 24-hour period, during the early stages of the financial crisis. A respected financial company is downsizing and one of the victims is the risk management division head, who was working on a major analysis just when he was let go. His protégé completes the study late into the night and then frantically calls his colleagues in about the company's financial disaster he has discovered. What follows is a long night of panicked double checking and double dealing as the senior management prepare to do whatever it takes to mitigate the debacle to come even as the handful of conscientious comrades find themselves dragged along into the unethical abyss. [2011, USA, Runtime: 107 minutes, Rated: R for language]
Matthew Pejkovic, of Matt’s Movie Reviews, critiques the film as “intelligently written and brilliantly portrayed, “Margin Call” delves into the belly of the beast where consequence is given no conscious and the line between good vs evil is blurred amongst a sea of numbers.”
Janet Redman, CRPC (Financial Advisor at Merrill Lynch) will lead a post-screening discussion.
Monthly screenings are $4 for Rehoboth Beach Film Society members (current membership card must be presented), and $6 for future members. Attendees of the Ocean View screening at DiFebo’s get 10% off their meal on the evening of the screening. DiFebo’s begins serving dinner at 4:30 pm, reservations and early arrivals for dinner are encouraged.
