While the official description – “the story follows key people at an investment bank, over a 24-hour period, during the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis” – could not be duller, it is actually a fascinating insight into the Goldman Sachs “Big Short,” the Lehman Brothers collapse and the 2008 wipe out of a fraudulent mortgage securities and derivative bubble.
