To Big To Fail

Recommended Posts

Premiering in the UK on Thursday 15 September,

Or if you do not have Sky and wished to watch streamed in your own time. B)

Sky Atlantic HD proudly presents Too Big to Fail, the critically acclaimed HBO adaptation of Andrew Ross Sorkin’s best-selling book.

Focusing on the US banking crisis of 2008, the film stars Oscar winner William Hurt, Oscar-nominated actors James Woods and Paul Giamatti and Emmy Award winner Cynthia Nixon.

Opening with real-life footage of former presidents deregulating the American banking system during their times in office, we then take a look inside the boardrooms of Wall Street’s all-powerful financial institutions as the ‘mortgage meltdown’ took hold.

Riveting in its examination of the mutually-dependent relationship between Wall Street and Washington, the film follows Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson’s (Hurt) fight to stabilise the economy in the face of a multi-billion dollar black hole caused by the exposure of the banks to toxic assets.Replaying the actions of Wall Street’s top bankers are James Woods as Lehman Brother’s long-time CEO Richard Fuld; Bill Pullman as chairman and CEO of JP Morgan Chase, Jamie Dimon; Matthew Modine as chairman of Merrill Lynch and Michael O’Keefe as the chairman and CEO of JC Flowers & co.

Yeah, that's a great idea, support makers of such documentaries by encouraging people to watch crappy low-quality pirated versions of their work.

Far better to wait for the HD versions to hit newzbin.......... ;)

Seriously its Sky who is partly at fault here they pay a pittance to the makers of this sort of stuff yet still post ever increasing year on year profits...

I already have a sky package where Atlantic is included, tell me why should I not download the piece and watch it in peace without interruption every 8 minutes with advertising breaks.

Edit to Add looks like it has been around since June on Newzbin http://www.newzbin.com/browse/post/6146564/

I hate it when people don't know the difference between to, too and two.

We all know this thread's title should read "To Big Too Fail".
