Economics gets exciting in this clever and gripping Oscar winner
Fancy a different cinema experience? Then why not get down to Roxy's Bar And Screen and catch great new films, served up with a side of modern European food. With an emphasis on healthy ingredients from the nearby food market – think homemade burgers and perfectly cooked steaks – it's a step up from your everyday Multiplex outing. With an all-star cast, The Big Short follows the actions of Wall Street pro Michael Burry (Christian Bale) and a host of other opportunists who, after some savvy investments, found themselves making millions from the global economic crisis of 2008. With performances from Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Brad Pitt and many other famous faces, a slew of Oscar noms and a win in The Best Adapted Screenplay category, this film has the winning formula.
