(2020) (Jude Law, Carrie Coon) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: An always hustling commodities trader puts a strain on his family when he moves them from New York to London and tries to impress them and others by living way beyond their means.
It's the 1980s and Rory O'Hara (JUDE LAW) is a successful commodities trader who sees greater financial opportunity in London than in the States and thus decides to move his equestrian trainer wife, Allison (CARRIE COON), and their two kids -- teenager Sam (OONA ROCHE) and her 10-year-old brother, Ben (CHARLIE SHOTWELL) -- across the pond. There, he's returning to work for firm owner Arthur Davis (MICHAEL CULKIN) but with more sway than before and immediately begins spending like that.
Not only does he pay rent for an immense mansion in the countryside, but he also gets his kids into the best schools money can buy and even has his wife's prized horse shipped from America to them. But it soon becomes apparent that he's having them live way beyond their means, something that begins to put a strain on his marriage and thus affects their kids as well.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- Those thinking this is a (supernaturally-based) horror film might be interested (but will likely be disappointed that it's not).
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
- For language throughout, some sexuality, nudity and teen partying.
