The Outsider

Christophe Barratier

France, 2016

We're still dealing with many ramifications of 2008’s global financial meltdown. Writer-director Christophe Barratier seeks to put a face to that event and get inside the mind of a man who could, literally, gamble with millions—and billions—of other people's money. Outsider pulls us behind the headlines for the true tale of Jérôme Kerviel (Arthur Dupont), who rose to become one of the top traders at France's large Société Générale bank. As Kerviel navigates the split-second demands of the markets, we witness the brutal bonhomie of the male traders, the growing attitude that winning is everything and rules are for losers. A clever feint in the stylish opening scenes lead the viewer astray, but when that truth is revealed, it sets off another cat-and-mouse scramble to avoid a disaster we know is coming but cannot look away from.—Dave Nuttycombe
