Description by New Video Group:
Based on the case that captivated the country in the early ‘80s, the BILLIONAIRE BOYS CLUB tells the shocking true story of Joe Hunt, a charismatic financial whiz kid who refused to let anything or anyone stand in the way of his pursuit of immense wealth. Armed with the promise of doubling or even tripling their money, Joe convinces rich young men from prominent families to join his investment group (the BBC). But, as their wealth grows, so does their greed. In danger of losing everything, and determined to maintain their extravagant lifestyles, Joe and the Billionaire Boys grow desperate enough to kill. Ultimately, they turn upon one another in one of the most shocking examples of corrupt ambition from the decade that defined it. Starring Judd Nelson (The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo's Fire) in one of the most compelling performances of his career as the brazen and ambitious Joe Hunt, and Ron Silver (Ali, The West Wing) as the con man who ultimately becomes his victim, the BILLIONAIRE BOYS CLUB is a thrilling exposé of an era of excess and what happens when the desire for cold, hard cash trumps all.
