A fable of excess and flawed ambition, Money, based on the book by Martin Amis, takes a sharp look at the corrupting nature of capitalism and greed. It stars Nick Frost. It is 1981 and Londoner John Self - a successful director of commercials, a hedonist, and habitual drunk - is invited to New York by film producer Fielding Goodney in order to shoot his first film. But things are not straightforward. Self's cast of acting legends and up and coming stars finds their egos and emotional issues aggravated by the roles they've been given. Back home, his father is invoicing him for his childhood and Self is starting to suspect his girlfriend, Selina, is cheating. Self is also receiving phone calls from a mysterious stalker who seems to know his every move, demanding money and threatening retribution. Meanwhile, Goodney's budget increases by the day. Is John Self's life about to implode? With a strong cast, Money is a bold, irreverent, darkly comic and unsettling ride through the excesses of the 1980s.
