The “Game Stop short squeeze” of 2021 was one of the wildest financial rides in the modern history of the New York Stock Exchange: Never before had amateur traders been able to go head-to-head against the deep pockets of ultra-rich hedge funds to make (and, well, lose) a fortune in such a short timeframe. Dumb Money brings the drama, excitement, and pure bizarre-ness of this extraordinary event to the big screen — a veritable nerdy-David-vs-UHNWI-Goliath tale for the ages!
With an ensemble cast of all-star talent that includes Paul Dano as financial analyst Keith Gill, Seth Rogen as hedge-funder Gabe Plotkin, and Sebastian Stan as Robinhood App CEO Vlad Tenev, Dumb Money is based on the book The Anti-Social Network by Ben Mezrich and directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl, Pam & Tommy, Mike).
