‘Money Monster’ pays off with thrillingly directed cast

By Megan Jones, Advertising Manager

Jodie Foster has done it again by directing another real-time film that pulls you in and keeps your attention. The clever drama, Money Monster, was released in theaters on Friday, May 13, 2016.

Money Monster is a 90 minute suspense-filled thriller which starts off with smug TV personality Lee Gates (George Clooney) hosting his daily financial show with the help of the smartest producer around, Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts). Gates dresses up in ridiculous outfits and dances around making stock talk as goofy graphics appear behind him (I don’t know about you, but I’ll pay $9.25 to see George Clooney dance any day). He is constantly goofing off while she is constantly keeping him in check; they have somewhat of a brother-sister relationship.
