Wall Street gets a touch of humanity in this compelling effort. In 2008, a young analyst (Zachary Quinto) uncovers information that could lead to his company's downfall. For the next 24 hours, the firm's morally conflicted execs -- including Kevin Spacey and an ultra-dour Demi Moore -- scramble to save face. Appealing characters, interesting premise. But the drama is done in by dull boardroom scenes and tedious dialogue better suited for CNBC.
