What is Dumb Money about?
Dumb Money is all set to release in theatres on September 22, 2023. The film’s description (as shared by Sony Pictures Entertainment on its Youtube channel) reads, “Dumb Money is the ultimate David vs. Goliath tale, based on the insane true story of everyday people who flipped the script on Wall Street and got rich by turning GameStop (yes, the mall videogame store) into the world’s hottest company.”
The story follows Keith Gill (played by Paul Dano), who kickstarted the entire incident when he posted about putting his entire life savings into the stock. As his social media posts start gaining traction, his life and everybody else’s lives around him start to change as well. Soon everybody who invested in the stock started getting richer but then, the billionaires start to fight back. As a result of this, both parties see their worlds being upended in the process.
