“I’m like God but with a better suit,” declares Centabank CEO, Simon O’Reilly (Anthony LaPaglia) with pride.  Welcome to the world of The Bank, ripe with avarice and corruption, where O’Reilly and his ilk can thrive and honest Aussie battlers lose everything.

Enter Jim Doyle (David Wenham) a maverick mathematician who has devised a formula to predict the fluctuations of the stock market.  When he joins O’Reilly’s fold he must first prove his loyalty to the “greed is good” ethos.  Which way will he go?  What does he have to hide?

A heady, exciting thriller where imagination, genius and humanity collide with unabashed greed, the Bank marks a brilliant new foray into Australian cinema.

About The International Film Showcase

The IFS project is the brainchild of Efi Lubliner and Jo Alice Canterbury.  During the many years they have attended international film festivals around the United States, they compiled a list of films which they believe deserve wider distribution and recognition. After repeatedly recommending their favorite films to friends, they were frustrated to discover that these cinematic gems were neither screened in local theaters nor released on DVD.

Programming is monthly at El Campanil Theatre, The Orinda Theater and Blue Light Cinemas in Cupertino.
