‘The Laundromat’ Trailer: Soderbergh’s New True-Crime Caper
Steven Soderbergh already made on of the year’s best films with Netflix, the basketball drama High Flying Bird. Just a few months later, he’s back with another exciting Netflix film, this one called The Laundromat. Reteaming with Scott Z. Burns, the writer of The Informant!, Soderbergh’s made a new true-crime caper flick with an impressive cast, including Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, David Schwimmer, and Meryl Streep. (Remember when Soderbergh “retired” a few years ago? He’s more productive as a retired person than most working stiffs!)
Here’s the trailer for the movie:
The official synopsis:
When her idyllic vacation takes an unthinkable turn, Ellen Martin (Academy Award winner Meryl Streep) begins investigating a fake insurance policy, only to find herself down a rabbit hole of questionable dealings that can be linked to a Panama City law firm and its vested interest in helping the world's wealthiest citizens amass even larger fortunes. The charming — and very well-dressed — founding partners Jürgen Mossack (Academy Award winner Gary Oldman) and Ramón Fonseca (Golden Globe nominee Antonio Banderas) are experts in the seductive ways shell companies and offshore accounts help the rich and powerful prosper. They are about to show us that Ellen's predicament only hints at the tax evasion, bribery and other illicit absurdities that the super wealthy indulge in to support the world's corrupt financial system.
The Laundromat opens in theaters on September 27, and will be available on Netflix on October 18.
