Jodie Foster directs this fairy tale for the Great Recession

Unfolding in real time, Money Monster features George Clooney as Lee Gates, a smug, arrogant TV host of a financial advice show, taken hostage on air by an irate small-time investor wiped out by a bad tip of his. Demanding justice or at least answers from the faceless financiers that rob him and others of their hard-earned cash, Gates and his producer Patty (Julia Roberts) initially try to humor the gunman, but eventually sympathize, uncovering a web of fraud as they investigate who’s  truly accountable.
