Action at the Berlinale 2011 is revving up on the festival's opening weekend. A press conference for the new film Margin Call was held this morning at the Grand Hyatt Hotel. The American independent drama has been entered into the Competition section and stars Kevin Spacey and Demi Moore.
You can listen to a conversation from the press conference with writer and director J.C. Chandor about working with the Margin Call cast.
Margin Call is a thriller entangling the key players at an investment firm during one perilous 24-hour period in the early stages of the 2008 financial crisis.
When entry-level analyst Peter Sullivan (Zachary Quinto) unlocks information that could prove to be the downfall of the firm, a roller-coaster ride ensues as decisions both financial and moral catapult the lives of all involved to brink of disaster.
The roots of Margin Call emerge from a highly personal place for first-time writer/director J.C. Chandor, whose father worked for Merrill Lynch for almost 40 years.
The cast includes Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons, Stanley Tucci, and Demi Moore.
