The Good Kind of Debt
This is the only time I will rave about how great debt is, and it is only because of the 2011 movie, The Debt. A movie about 3 Mossad agents, Rachel (Jessica Chastain, Helen Mirren), Stephan (Marton Csokas, Tom Wilkinson), and David (Sam Worthington, Ciaran Hinds), who in 1965 go undercover to bring down a Nazi war criminal, it weaves an engrossing story. The always brilliant Helen Mirren plays the older Rachel looking back on the events of the supposed successful mission. In flashback, we see what truly happened, and the consequences of one fateful choice made by the young agents. Sam Worthington and Jessica Chastain in particular do an excellent job of investing you in the characters and story, making you question what you would do if you were in their shoes. An intelligent thriller, The Debt is now on dvd and very worthy of a view. It's the rare kind of debt that won't cost you much.
