ARBITRAGE, the feature-directing debut of writer Nicholas Jarecki, is a taut and alluring suspense thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance. When we first meet New York hedge-fund magnate Robert Miller (Richard Gere) on the eve of his 60th birthday, he appears the very portrait of success in American business and family life. But behind the gilded walls of his mansion, Miller is in over his head, desperately trying to complete the sale of his trading empire to a major bank before the depths of his fraud are revealed. Struggling to conceal his duplicity from loyal wife Ellen (Susan Sarandon) and brilliant daughter and heir-apparent Brooke (Brit Marling), Miller's also balancing an affair with French art-dealer Julie Cote (Laetetia Casta). Just as he's about to unload his troubled empire, an unexpected bloody error forces him to juggle family, business, and crime with the aid of Jimmy Grant (Nate Parker), a face from Miller's past. One wrong turn ignites the suspicions of NYPD Detective Michael Bryer (Tim Roth), who will stop at nothing in his pursuits. Running on borrowed time, Miller is forced to confront the limits of even his own moral duplicity. Will he make it out before the bubble bursts?

Gere plays a cad so well that you want to see him get what he has coming, but then you hear his voice and see his emotions played out and you want him to be ok and pull through things.
I fell asleep in it a few times. I normally do not sleep in movies. So if you get a chance to watch it, I would do it on HBO or Showtime or whoever picks it up rather than pay for it.
I did not turn my soundbar on to watch this, I just did it through the tv and it was kind of irritating because it is one of those movies where they go from load background noise to whispering and it is hard to understand. Maybe it would have been better if my soundbar was on; however, since it wasn't an action flick I did not bother.
I think they thought the ending was a cliff hanger, I just thought it was boring. Did not love it.
Unfortunately, the title, "Arbitrage" is misleading. This story is a lot less about the financial dealings that could lead to another Wall Street meltdown and a lot more about an affair gone wrong. A story about an affair gone wrong has been done to death, so would have to be amazing in yet another retelling. This movie is not it. It's playing in movie theatres now (on the East Coast anyway). Let's just say I am extremely glad I did not spring for the cost of a movie ticket. For me, "Arbitrage" gets 3 stars mainly because I could watch Richard Gere and Susan Sarandon tussle over a phone book and it would be interesting. What would be even more interesting is a well-done story about the returning seepage of corporate greed and the inability to learn lessons from the past - the movie "Margin Call" comes to mind...
