An Academy Award Best Picture nominee based on the true story and best-selling book by Michael Lewis (THE BLIND SIDE, MONEYBALL), THE BIG SHORT stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, and Brad Pitt, and tackles its complicated subject matter with sharp dialogue and scathing humor. "One of the most appealing things about this very appealing movie -- a stylistic Chex Mix of storytelling, satire, advocacy, and clip art -- is its high regard for the intellect of the viewer" (Slate).
