The Big Short Overview

Prior to the 2008 global financial collapse in which banks screwed their customers by committing the greatest fraud in U.S. history, four outsiders (Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt) decide to take them down when they figure out how to "short" the market. The risk is huge, and they have only one shot at it.

Based on the bestselling non-fiction book "The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine," by Michael Lewis.
