Anyone who says that money is the root of all evil, doesn't have it. Welcome to the new American Dream. Eager to show his aloof father that he can succeed in life, an ambitious, intelligent college dropout takes a job at a small stock brokerage firm, where he meets with great success. But when he learns that the company is selling worthless securities to gullible buyers, he realizes the cost of his ambitions--and how deeply embroiled he has become in the scam.

Good but mature movie. Not for kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the primary reason for the R rating is very strong language, including racist, sexist, homophobic, and anti-semitic epithets. Characters smoke, drink, use drugs, and beat people up. Two characters have an affair, though nothing is shown.
