When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short, a bold investment that leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking.

When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything. "A true crime story and a madcap comedy, a heist movie and a scalding polemic, The Big Short will affirm your deepest cynicism about Wall Street while simultaneously restoring your faith in Hollywood." - A.O. Scott (New York Times)
