It's sad to know that people enjoy cheating others of their money because of greed. This film is interesting because it takes you behind the scenes at how intricate these brokers carry out their plans of selling people to freely hand over thousands of dollars.

Giovanni Ribisi, one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood, was wonderfully cast as the main lead. Ribisi convincingly portrays a young, naive man ambitious to learn how to be a "successful broker" and constantly trying to gain his father's affection.

I recommend watching this film, especially if you liked "Wall Street", "Wall Street Money Never Sleeps" or "Wolf of Wall Street".

This is very much happening in reality, chasing clients, pressuring, looking for fast ways to make money.
Enjoyed Ben Affleck's & Giovanni's acting.

The DEEP inside mechanism of LEGAL DECEPTION, looting ordinary families in the name of "investment, faster return & monumental profit" has ONLY created victims than victors, bringing down more than the very people involved in MILKING THE COW.
Interesting to see how the system works,,, VERY INTRIGUING FILM.
