Unremarkable recreation of the true story of futures trader Nick Leeson (McGregor), who singlehandedly brought down the Barings Merchant Bank in 1995. Working the floor of the Singapore International Money Exchange, Leeson quickly realizes he's completely out of his depth but can't admit it, so he hides his losses and continues to gamble until the deficit adds up to a $1 billion. Based on the book by Nicholas Leeson and Edward Whitley. The real Leeson was paroled from a Singapore jail in 1999.
