Adapted from Paolo Virzì’s award-winning 2013 film and Stephen Amidon’s 2004 novel of the same name, director Marc Meyers’ ensemble drama follows two families whose lives become hopelessly intertwined in the wake of a spontaneous financial investment. Brought together by their children’s burgeoning relationship, family man Drew (Liev Schreiber) finds himself convinced to invest in the seemingly stable hedge fund of Quint (Peter Sarsgaard), a powerful businessman with a long line of recent successes. But as his investment reveals itself to be less than secure, a car accident throws both families’ lives into turmoil. Co-starring Marisa Tomei, Maya Hawke, and Alex Wolff, HUMAN CAPITAL provides a nuanced commentary on the difficulty in disconnecting our lives from our net worth.
