A Boiler Room is a chop shop for stockbrokers, a shady firm that cons people out of money using the stock market as bait. Giovanni Ribisi plays Seth, a smart young Jewish kid who makes a good living running an illegal casino in his apartment. Seth’s friend brings a high roller, a man who has made millions in a boiler room. He tells Seth that if he wants to make the really big bucks, he should join them. Seth agrees and is introduced to life as a gray-market stockbroker. The tension and pacing of Boiler Room are fast and exciting, like a good thriller, and the setting is exotic and original.
