Gold Description

GOLD is the epic tale of one man’s pursuit of the American dream, to discover gold. Starring Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, a prospector desperate for a lucky break, he teams up with a similarly eager geologist and sets off on an amazing journey to find gold in the uncharted jungle of Indonesia. Getting the gold was hard, but keeping it would be even harder, sparking an adventure through the most powerful boardrooms of Wall Street. The film is inspired by a true story.

This high stakes series captures the physical and emotional struggles four sets of gold miners face as they chase their individual goals over the 16-week Yukon gold mining season.

    If people knew the real story this movie was based off they'd probably find it to be a good movie. It's one of those movies that sounds to fake. But when you know the real story it's a much better movie. Just look up Bre-X gold mine

    From a gold strike in Indonesia to Wall Street IPO. Interesting story with some great acting.
  • Dull...

    Unnecessarily long, dull, boring, would've been way shorter, but unfortunately... it's not. The only good thing was the cast and the performances. Other than that, I wouldn't recommend this watch.

    All I get is sound and subtitles, but none of the video works. Help! I purchased the movie and it isn’t working properly.

    It's hard to put this movie into words. On one hand it feels like a modern-day fairy tale, sort of an adult version of the underrated 90s classic A Simple Twist of Fate, in which Steve Martin's character, a recluse whose only company is his collection of gold coins, wakes up to find his gold stolen and inexplicably replaced with a young orphan. The movie Gold is similarly concerned with the eternal tension between love and the ways we try to fill the void in its absence, and McConaughey plays his prodigal son role to perfection, so much so that it's hard not to get emotional when he finally reconnects with his human side. On the other hand, the movie assumes a certain amount of knowledge about business and finance, which is not in itself a bad thing, but having to frequently pause the movie to look up financial concepts (what qualifies a company to be listed on a major stock exchange? what's the difference between a land lease and a land permit? etc.) took me out of the moment more often than I would have liked. Of course, what this really means is that Gold, like most of Stephen Gaghan's films, is meant to challenge you just as much as it's meant to entertain you.

    I remember seeing this in theaters because the Founder was almost sold out and I didn't feel like sitting in the front of the theater. Should have just sat in the front because Gold is horrendous. It may have great actors, but it is very difficult to get into the story.
