CINEMA

Based on the 21st-century memoir of Solomon Southdown 12.7 Years An Actuary follows the tribulations of an educated statistician and family man from Chelmsford who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in the City of London. Stripped of his past, his Oyster card and even (in the opinion of his best friend Martin) his personality, the renamed Pratt becomes the property of Plantation House based start-up Bumbercatch LLP whose comparatively benign and sympathetic demeanour belies its not very nice at all status.

The Wolf of Lime Street is a three-hour orgy of greed, indulgence and swearing that follows its antihero's career from High St broker to big-time London market specialty broker. In realistically re-enacted conference scenes, the Wolf consumes his own body weight in canap?s and overdoses on Diet Coke. All this debauchery we view from the smugly narrated POV of the ?self-made man? himself, while his victims, many of them ordinary upper middle class underwriters just get on with their work. [Are you sure about this? Ed]

American Hustle is the true story of how US intermediaries place insurance business with insurance companies in exchange for commission payments [There?s got to be more to it than that surely? Ed]
