Last night The Hollywood News ventured out to London’s Leicester Square for another red carpet premiere, this time for the upcoming Richard Gere thriller ARBITRAGE which hit cinemas on 1st March. The film recently garnered a four star review from our own Craig Hunter here on the site, a rating I wholeheartedly agree with. It’s a great watch and Gere is superb.
When we first meet New York hedge-fund magnate Robert Miller (Richard Gere) on the eve of his 60th birthday, he appears the very portrait of success in American business and family life. But behind the gilded walls of his mansion, Miller is in over his head, desperately trying to complete the sale of his trading empire to a major bank before the depths of his fraud are revealed. Struggling to conceal his duplicity from loyal wife Ellen (Susan Sarandon) and brilliant daughter and heir-apparent Brooke (Brit Marling), Miller’s also balancing an affair with French art-dealer Julie Cote (Laetetia Casta). Just as he’s about to unload his troubled empire, an unexpected bloody error forces him to juggle family, business, and crime with the aid of Jimmy Grant (Nate Parker), a face from Miller’s past.
We caught up with the film’s producer Mohammed Al Turki and writer/ director Nicholas Jarecki on the red carpet, and you can watch our interviews in the player below.
