Billionaire Boys Club tells the unbelievable true story of financial whiz kid Joe Hunt (Elgort) and tennis pro Dean Karny (Egerton) whose investment pool propels them into the upper echelons of LA in the early ‘80s. With their charisma and unbridled ambition, the two convince a clique of privileged trust fund babies to invest in the BBC. Overnight Joe and Dean become the stars of a world dripping with money, sex and celebrity. Their lavish lifestyle and impressive returns obscure a snowballing fraud. As the law finally catches up, their hollow empire collapses under the weight of insatiable greed. Dean’s loyalty wavers, the body count rises, and Joe must make a moral choice between freedom and his own redemption.

"Kevin Spacey is the best and worst thing about a second-rate 'The Wolf of Wall Street' knockoff that simultaneously celebrates and condemns ’80s excess ... But the irony of the film’s inevitable failure is that Spacey — who delivers one of his great egomaniacal scenery-chewing performances — took the risk of playing a character dangerously close to his off-screen persona (the one captured by Croatian paparazzi slapping a young man’s backside, or outed by “Rent” star Anthony Rapp as a predatory pederast late last year) at roughly the same moment those similarities were revealed to the world, making it doubly uncomfortable to watch the actor leer at the ensemble of generically handsome Ken-doll dudes the movie parades in front of him."
