Adults In The Room
Provides an extraordinary account of low cunning at the heart of Greece’s 2015 financial bailout. The more defiant the left-wing Syriza government became, the more it was met with intimidation from some or duplicitous reassurance from others.

A must see movie based on former Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis ‘s book on what Greece was put through and is still going through. A mesmerizing lesson in political economics.
It is hard to imagine that a movie about an international ‘financial crisis’ could be turned into a spellbinding, edge of your seat experience. But Costa Gavras succeeds brilliantly. Do not miss this film!
