Movie Info

As he approaches his 60th birthday, New York hedge-fund magnate Robert Miller (Richard Gere) is the picture of success -- at least on the surface. In reality, Miller is in over his head, trying desperately to sell his empire to a big bank before the authorities and his family uncover the depth of his fraud. Unexpectedly, a critical error forces Miller to juggle family, business and crime with the aid of a former associate, but a detective's (Tim Roth) suspicions mean it may already be too late.

Audience Reviews for Arbitrage

    'Arbitrage' has Nicholas Jarecki painting a most unflattering portrait of Wall Street and its tycoons; the closing scene has the protagonist -- a fraudulent hedge fund magnate -- literally getting away with murder. While it would be unkind (and mostly wrong) to assume that the film relies solely on the magnetic performance of Richard Gere, it's quite accurate to say that it wouldn't be the same without him. 'Arbitrage' works for the legal thriller that it is, but it's Gere that keeps us enthralled in the action.

    Good movie headed by an excellent performance from Richard Gere as this man who's struggling to keep up the appearance he's built up over the years. I think Richard does a great job as this man who's navigating every avenue available to him, whether morally correct or not, to make sure that the level of the fraud he has perpetrated be kept secret so as to not ruin his family. Richard Gere is great but, somehow, the movie isn't. I can't exactly put my finger on why the movie isn't as great as Gere is. Maybe it's the story feels a little detached, I am not really that invested in much of what the movie is offering. Not that I didn't care, but I had problems with the story. It does have its plot holes, but a lot of great movies have plot holes so that's not really a problem as long as the storytelling is dramatically effective. I think it's the fact that everything that happens that's not directly related to Robert, then again almost everything in a way connects back to him, feels uninspired. For example, whenever there's a long stretch of time when Gere is not around, that's when the movie sort of loses its momentum. And that's a problem. Thankfully, Gere delivers a confident and charismatic performance. And the character is great, it's a strong character study. It's just a shame that the 'sub-plots', if you will, are so uninspired because it does drag the movie down and makes it only slightly worse than I was expecting. Still this is a good movie, one that has its problems but Richard Gere makes the movie worth sitting through.

    Well done movie about how horrible things can get when people let money motivate their actions. Tense, and unnerving. Richard Gere is fantastic, as usual. Not the fastest paced film, but not at all boring..

    Interesting suspense thriller. Reminds me of 'Perfect Murder'. Gere plays a hedge fund magnate who is desparately trying to sell his business before fraud is discovered. He is involved in an affair and hit and run, which adds to his unravelling world. Good cast and storyline.
