the big short

It’s about the time of year to start catching up on Oscar movies that I haven’t seen.  What better place to start than one nominated for 5 awards, including best picture?

The Big Short is based on the true story of the housing market collapse in 2008.  It follows the separate, yet connected, stories of several people who saw the collapse coming, and therefore bet against the always stable housing market.  I know; it sounds super boring.
