Director Younger’s homage to ”Wall Street” stars Ribisi as a pasty college dropout who joins a brokerage house (run by Scott and Affleck), rises through the ranks, and falls in love… only to realize the firm is shadier than a weeping willow in summer. A hot ticket at Sundance, it’s achingly of the moment — but there’s a fine line between homage and rip-off. BUZZ FACTOR: 7
