Dumb Money is based on the insane true story of the YouTuber who brought Wall Street to its knees and got rich by turning the video-game retailer GameStop into the world's hottest company. In the middle of everything is regular guy Keith Gill (Paul Dano), who starts it all by sinking his life savings into the stock and posting about it. When his social posts start blowing up, so does his life and the lives of everyone following him. As a stock tip becomes a movement, everyone gets rich - until the billionaires fight back, and both sides find their worlds turned upside down. (Black Bear UK)

English Another gripping and suspenseful true story based on real events that grabs you by the balls and doesn't let go. I'd easily classify it as the little sibling of this year's Air and Tetris, it's a David and Goliath battle where a group of amateur investors bet on Gamestop not to go bankrupt and in doing so, tear up Wall Street, shake up the world and make history thanks to one man who started it all. The likeable Paul Dano gives a great performance and Seth Rogen, who plays the arrogant money man, is a delight. Even for someone not familiar with the stock market and shares, the film is presented in a simple way, so that even an ignorant viewer can find their way around. Pete Davidson takes care of the humor and the overall tone of the film is very feel good. Once things get going, there's a nice stressful build-up where things really start to get tense and the emotions work, and it goes on like this until the finale, which includes my favourite lawsuit. Dumb Money serves up its story with tremendous style and fun that just about anyone can enjoy. 8/10. ()
