Boiler Room is about a college drop out who starts a casino in his house to make money.  After being tired of doing illegal business, he joins an investment firm.  This firm pumps out rich brokers so Seth Davis, Giovanni Ribisi, is very hopeful for success. He soon realizes though, that the firm is not what it seems and is ripping off their investors.

This movie is a great movie. The plot is deep and thought out. Seth deals with acceptance issues from his father the entire movie.  As Seth tries to please his father by making an honest living, he only continues to disappoint his father.  The acting is also great in this movie since the audience's mood is exactly what Seth is feeling.

Giovanni Ribisi makes this movie great. You will find yourself repeating mutliple lines and loving how these white collar criminals rip off the average investor. This is one of my favorite movies and I recommend that everyone sees it at least once.
