Sir Richard “Greedy” McCreadie is a controversial billionaire businessman who has recently been called in to testify at a Parliamentary Select Committee about various unethical practices he’s employed throughout his career. With his reputation having taken a bit of a hit in the process, he decides the best way to restore it is to throw a lavish 60th birthday party on the Greek island of Mykonos, inviting the rich and famous to celebrate alongside him. But whether it’s musical artists cancelling, family members becoming embroiled within an absurd reality TV show or Syrian refugees on the adjacent beach, McCreadie’s plans just won’t come together. With flashbacks detailing the upbringing of the fictional tycoon and the dodgy dealings which aided the development of his fashion empire, the film gives insight to the astonishing ways in which real businesses have been built. With an ensemble cast from the world of British comedy, satire ‘Greed’ pulls few punches in its skewering of the media, big business and the cult of celebrity.
This absorbing and all-too-topical thriller follows the high-powered players at an investment bank over a tense 24 hours.
