it’s about the Panama Papers. Here’s what Wikipedia says about the plot:
The film follows Ellen Martin (Streep), whose dream vacation takes a wrong turn and leads her down a rabbit hole of shady dealings that can all be traced to one Panama City law firm, run by seductive partners Jürgen Mossack (Oldman) and Ramón Fonseca (Banderas). She soon learns that her minor predicament is only a drop in the bucket of millions of files linking an off-shore tax scheme to the world’s richest and most powerful political leaders.
I just started watching it. I loved the line, either Oldman or Banderas, saying “Credit means the future in the language of money.” It strikes me as how a very particular type of financial criminal, or at least should-be criminal, sees the world. Or The White Collar Criminal’s Perspective for Dummies.
I’ll take whatever help I can get understanding that stuff.
