[No. 19 of 52 in #52FilmsByWomen]

Money Monster is a movie that mostly takes place in real time, during a hostage situation in a television studio that’s being broadcast live, under the demands of the hostage taker. The hostage taker is Kyle (Jack O’Connell) a down-on-his-luck everyman who had just lost all his money over a bad investment, and he takes on his grievance against Wall Street by hijacking the TV studio and the host Lee Gates (George Clooney). The show’s director, Patty Fenn (Julia Roberts) tries to keep the cameras running while trying to investigate the circumstances behind the gunman and investment at the same time.
