In this thoroughly engaging modern epic, we see the ruthless edge of our increasingly digital world.
New York cousins Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsgård) are players in the high-stakes game of High-Frequency Trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Their dream? To build a straight fibre-optic cable line between Kansas and New Jersey, making them millions.
But nothing is straightforward for this flawed pair. Anton is the brains, Vincent is the hustler, and together they push each other and everyone around them to the breaking point with their quixotic adventure. Despite Anton's best efforts, he's still some way off achieving his promised speed of 16 milliseconds, the same amount of time it takes for a hummingbird to beat its wings once. Salma Hayek stars as their manipulative old boss who wants nothing more than to beat them at their own game.
