Nominated for an Academy Award for Writing (Original Screenplay), Margin Call, follows key people at a financial institution, as the work of two risk analysts predicts a nationwide financial collapse. With this information, key employees battle how to use it best to their advantage: Use other financial institutions and recoup as much potential loss as possible before the collapse, or ride the storm and protect the integrity of their business.
