Oscar-winner Costa-Gavras ("Missing," "Z") is back this October with his latest, the fast-paced, financial thriller "Capital," starring an international ensemble that includes Gabriel Byrne, Gad Elmaleh and Liya Kebede. Indiewire is pleased to exclusively premiere the trailer.
Here's the synopsis per distributor Cohen Media Group:
"Capital," a darkly comic, suspenseful drama set in the high stakes world of global finance. When the CEO of France’s Phenix Bank collapses on the golf course, Machiavellian young executive Marc Tourneuil (Gad Elmaleh) is crowned as his replacement. A whirlwind of ruthless ambition, power struggles, greed and deception ensues as Tourneuil’s brutal ascent is jeopardized by a hostile takeover attempt from a large American hedge fund led by Dittmar Rigule (Gabriel Byrne), erotic distractions from international supermodel Nassim (Liya Kebede), and adversaries with an agenda for destruction. "Capital" is a pointed commentary on how the Darwinian world of contemporary capitalism plays itself out across the global financial stage. Based on the book Le Capital by Stéphane Osmont, the film is directed by Costa-Gavras and written by Costa-Gavras, Jean-Claude Grumberg and Karim Boukercha. The film also stars Natacha Regnier and Celine Sallette.
Cohen Media Group opens the film October 25 in select theaters nationwide. Watch the trailer below:
