Arbitrage movie scene

Richard Gere and Laetitia Casta take it easy before things get difficult in Arbitrage.

Richard Gere (Brooklyn’s Finest) leads a cast that includes Susan Sarandon (The Greatest), Tim Roth (TV’s Lie to Me), Brit Marling (Another Earth) and Laetitia Casta (Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life) in Arbitrage, a 2012 thriller about love, loyalty and high finance.

Robert Miller (Gere) is a New York hedge-fund magnate who appears to have it all: money, power, a loving wife (Sarandon), and a devoted daughter (Marling) working by his side. But behind the gilded wall of his mansion, Miller is running on borrowed time, trying to unload his crippled trading company before his frauds are revealed. A deadly error throws Miller’s seemingly perfect life into a tailspin, raising the suspicions of a detective (Roth) and threatening the future of his financial empire. As the line blurs between what is right and wrong, legal and criminal, Miller is driven to desperate measures to protect the only thing more precious than his considerable fortune: his family.

The feature film debut from writer/director Nicholas Jarecki, Arbitrage received a limited release to theaters in the U.S. in September, 2012 following its launch at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Well-received by the critics (having earned a 7/10 rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 106 published reviews), Arbitrage has earned some $6 million at the domestic box office since it’s U.S. premiere.

The DVD and Blu-ray editions of the R-rated Arbitrage contain the following bonus features:

  • Audio commentary with writer/director Nicholas Jarecki
  • “Who Is Robert Miller?” featurette
  • “A Glimpse Into Arbitrage” featurette
  • Deleted scenes with optional writer/director commentary
