I reviewed the unenlightening spiritual-poverty-among-one-percenters melodrama Affluenza for The Dissolve. The movie is set just prior to the 2008 financial crisis, which is uses as a backdrop for its lame love triangle plot. You could read a couple or three chapters of Michael Lewis’ The Big Short with your 85 minutes instead. Or just watch some soaps.
