Synopsis

In theory, ruthless moneyman Gordon Gekko is the villain of Oliver Stone's film about American high finance. But for many people, it is clear that Gekko with catchphrases like "Lunch is for wimps" and "Greed is good" is the amoral hero of the story, one of the great movie characters and an unwitting inspiration to some men and women who have gone to work in finance. Gekko is idolised by up and coming broker Bud Fox, who ingratiates himself into Gekko's shiny and ruthless world. But as their ambitions both become ever greater and their tactics increasingly illegal, both characters are faced with tough moral challenges. The film raises questions around ethical behaviour in the financial world which remain relevant today.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
