Three Dollars: Special 2 Disc Filmmaker's Edition
Eddie and Tanya fell in love over a turntable spinning Joy Division. They survived their twenties - and the eighties - and now Eddie is 38 with a wife, a child, a mortgage and three dollars to his name.
Three Dollars is the story of a good man in bad times and his resilience in the face of circumstances that could break him. As Eddie discovers, it's amazing how far a little change will get you.
From Elliot Perlman's best-selling novel and director Robert Connolly (The Bank) comes a heart wrenching, poignant and humorous modern fable.
Featuring a unique ensemble - David Wenham (Lord of the Rings, The Boys), Frances O'Connor (AI: Artificial Intelligence, Kiss or Kill), Sarah Wynter (24, Sex and the City) and introducing Joanna Hunt-Prokhovnik - Three Dollars asks the question: how much is your life worth?
"I'm like God but with a better suit," declares Centabank CEO, Simon O'Reilly (Anthony LaPaglia) with pride. Welcome to the world of The Bank, ripe with avarice and corruption, where O'Reilly and his ilk can thrive and honest Aussie battlers lose everything.
Enter Jim Doyle (David Wenham) a maverick mathematician who has devised a formula to predict the fluctuations of the stock market. When he joins O'Reilly's fold he must first prove his loyalty to the "greed is good" ethos. Which way will he go? What does he have to hide?
A heady, exciting thriller where imagination, genius and humanity collide with unabashed greed. The Bank marks a brilliant new foray into Australian cinema.
