Richard Gere in Sundance film 'Arbitrage'
The definition of arbitrage? “The purchase of securities on one market for immediate resale on another market in order to profit from a price discrepancy.” In other words: buying low and selling high. At this year’s Sundance Film Festival, its definition is one of the movies I’m most excited about. Richard Gere stars as a fraudulent hedge-fund manager (sound familiar?) trying to sell his business to a bank before his duplicity is discovered. It sounds like it could be the best showcase for Gere since his one-two punch of Unfaithful and Chicago a decade ago. Here’s an exclusive clip of Gere with costar (and last year’s Sundance breakout) Brit Marling, appearing as his daughter, who’s also an employee. Directed by Nicholas Jarecki, Arbitrage premieres at Sundance on Jan. 21.
