This month’s Prom Coast Film Society offering  is the highly acclaimed feature film ‘Margin Call’ (2011)

Margin Call is an American independent drama film directed by J.C Chandor with the story taking place over a 36-hour period at a large Wall Street investment bank. It highlights the initial stages of the financial crisis of 2007 – 2008 and focuses on the actions taken by a group of employees during the subsequent financial collapse. The ensemble features Kevin Spacey, Jeremy Irons, Simon Baker, Demi Moore, Stanley Tucci and Paul Bettany.

This feature film won an AFI international award for best screenplay, among a number of other awards. Margin Call was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. In financial terms a margin call is a call for additional funds or securities in a margin account either because the value of equity in the account has fallen below a required minimum or because additional securities have been purchased or sold short.
