From acclaimed filmmaker Costa-Gavras (Missing, Z) comes a fast-paced, darkly comic, suspenseful drama set in the high stakes world of global finance. When the CEO of a French bank collapses on the golf course, Machiavellian young executive Marc Tourneuil (Gad Elmaleh, Midnight in Paris, The Valet) 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 leader (Gabriel Byrne, The Usual Suspects, Miller's Crossing), erotic distractions from an international supermodel (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. (Partially subtitled) Official Web Site
