kevin spacey e Jeremy Irons sono i protagonisti di questo film che racconta il drammatico 2008 a wall street.  Un capo  settore di una grande banca finanziaria ha scoperto la reale situazione dello stato della banca: è appoggiata su azioni virtuali ed ha le ore contate. La storia si snoda tutta in una notte e la eccelsa recitazione dei due protagonisti, unita a dialoghi semplici e puntuali  offre un’immagine reale della tragedia che sta per abbattersi sull’economia mondiale, sulle imprese e sulle famiglie.

Margin Call riesce a descrivere come il destino di miliardi di persone sia deciso da pochi uomini che guardano manhattan  dagli ultimi piani di splendidi grattacieli.

John Tuld: There are three ways to make a living in this business: be first, be smarter, or cheat.

Sam Rogers: The real question is: who are we selling this to?

John Tuld: The same people we’ve been selling it to for the last two years, and whoelse ever would buy it.

Sam Rogers: But John, if you do this, you will kill the market for years. It’s over.

[John nods grimly]

Sam Rogers: And you’re selling something that you *know* has no value.

John Tuld: We are selling to willing buyers at the current fair market price.

[Sam lowers his gaze]

John Tuld: So that we may survive.

Sam Rogers: You would never sell anything to any of those people ever again.

John Tuld: I understand.

Sam Rogers: Do you?

John Tuld: Do *you*?

John Tuld: [pounding on the desk] This is it! I’m telling you this is it!

Sarah Robertson: We were wrong.

Jared Cohen: You mean *you* were wrong.

Sam Rogers: I’m heading for the conference room.

Jared Cohen: I want you to hear this.

Sam Rogers: I don’t want to hear this. How do you think I’ve stuck around this place so long?

dallo script del film

ERIC, il capo settore che scopre la situazione della banca, racconta a will emerson,  un altro capo della banca di essere un ingegnere che ha costruito un ponte
I was an engineer by trade.

                            WILL EMERSON
               Well…

                         ERIC
 It goes from Dilles Bottom, Ohio to  Moundsville West Virginia. It spans 912  feet over the Ohio river. Steel through  arch design. 12,100 people    a   day use the  thing.


                         ERIC (cont’d)
It cut out 35 miles each way of extra  driving to get from Wheeling to New   Martinsville. That’s a combined 847,000    miles of driving a day…    and  25,410,000   miles a month and 304,920,000 miles a    year saved.

Now ERIC’S mind is racing and he is adding up numbers as he   goes.

ERIC
I completed that project in 1986… 22   years ago. Over the life of that one   bridge that’s 6 billion… 708 million…  240 thousand miles that haven’t  had to be   driven! At let’s say… 50 miles an hour    that’s 134,164,800 hours… or 559,020    days… so that one little bridge has    saved the people of those two communities   a combined 1531 years of their lives not   wasted in the car… give or take.

                         WILL EMERSON
               Jesus.

                         ERIC
               One thousand, five hundred, thirty-one    years…

                         WILL EMERSON
               Fuck…

Il capo della società, john tuld, interpretato da jeremy Irons, suona come richard fuld, capo della lehman brothers –

margin call è la richiesta che il broker fa un cliente   if one or more of the securities you had bought (with borrowed money) decreased in value past a certain point. You would be forced either to deposit more money in the account or to sell off some of your assets.
