Dumb Money Movie Review:-
Dumb Money is the story of underdogs who dared to take on Wall Street’s titans and triumphed. The entire plot revolves around Wall Street’s attempt to short-sell GameStop shares, exposing several errors and exposing the inherent problems in the financial system. This film is charming, but it lacks the riveting intensity of other films in its category, such as “The Social Network,” “The Big Short,” or “Margin Call.” While it effectively captures the general tone, it falls just short of becoming an absolute masterpiece. Although it does not go into great detail on the complicated inner workings of the financial system, it expertly shows the role of social media and the internet in today’s financial landscape.
This documentary follows the real-life events surrounding the GameStop stock, focusing on the significant short squeeze undertaken by hedge fund firms and the resulting financial consequences. Keith Gill (Paul Dano) is a financial expert who supplements his income by investing in stocks and frequently communicates with a Reddit group that bets on companies, afterwards sharing his observations on his YouTube channel. Taking a dramatic leap of faith, he substantially invests in the plunging GameStop stocks, disregarding widespread fear of the pandemic. Gabe Plotkin (Seth Rogen), a hedge fund manager, has also bet billions on GameStop’s demise. Keith’s persistent faith originates from his opinion that the company is undervalued and full of potential.
Paul Dano, who plays Keith Gill, steals the show and gives an outstanding performance. He plays the character of an ordinary man, working hard to provide the financial security of his family. His body language conveys a lack of confidence while concealing a reservoir of drive to face the world. Pete Davidson, who plays Keith’s brother and a DoorDash delivery guy, lends his voice to Dano’s character. America Ferrera, who plays nurse Jenny and a GameStop investor, and Seth Rogen, who plays Gabe Plotkin, both deliver outstanding performances that do complete justice to the characters they play.
One of the film’s most admirable qualities is its ability to tackle a complicated financial issue while never losing sight of its entertainment value. Dumb Money depicts a varied cross-section of America united by a shared purpose – benefitting from GameStop and daring to defy Wall Street’s mighty magnates. Craig Gillespie, well known for his work on “I, Tonya,” infuses this film with a lighthearted and entertaining tone. He expertly assembles a talented group and ensures that each member has their opportunity to shine. By the end of the film, you’ll be intrigued by the prospect of investing in GameStop, mirroring the film’s own conquering spirit.
