It's hard to watch a father getting close to his daughter just for the money, even in a movie. But that is what director Oliver Stone wants to show you.
Winnie's fiance Jake Moore (Shia LeBeouf), an up-and-coming trader, is no better.
He loves his girlfriend but he lies to her to gain access to her fund, hoping to use it for a green investment project that he thinks will make him a fortune.
The film is realistic in the way it reveals how human desires work: no matter what, it all comes down to the same principle - we always want more.
The three main characters all succeed in making their roles believable. The audience could have hoped for more than an ending that tries to resolve all conflicts in one simple scene. But, after all, this is another Hollywood movie.
