Rogue Trader

1999 | Drama


A highly entertaining point of view regarding the Barings bank disaster of the mid 90's!

A cunning scoundrel in exotic Singapore single-handedly brings down Barings Bank, established two centuries ago and one of England's foremost financial institutions. The official report of the Bank of England concluded that Barings' failure to segregate Leeson's duties was "reprehensible," and those with "direct executive responsibility for establishing effective controls must bear much of the blame."

If you're looking for an edge of your seat thriller, with no violence!and hilarious breaks in the tension, this is your film!

Ewan McGregor perfectly captures the bullish arrogance of the rogue trader who we still are able to like and admire. Some of the most energetic scenes take place in the big trading room where we see the split-second buying and selling which makes fantastic drama that really gets the adrenalin flowing.

Directed by James Dearden starring Ewan McGregor, Anna Friel, Yves Beneyton, Betsy Brantley
