Acclaimed director Michael Winterbottom delivers a hilariously biting farce on the fashion industry. Retail billionaire Richard McCreadie (Steve Coogan) prepares for a lavish celebration of his 60th birthday on the Greek island of Mykonos. The occasion is overseen by a reality-TV camera crew, and a writer (David Mitchell) hired to craft McCreadie’s hagiographic biography with assistance from McCreadie’s ex-wife (Isla Fisher). Meanwhile, refugees from Syria have set up camp on a nearby beach, much to the consternation of hotel staff and local authorities. In the process, horrendous truths regarding McCreadie’s past are revealed that threaten the billionaire’s entire enterprise, and the fashion industry is shown as a cutthroat gladiatorial sport.

“The most important film of the year…. Greed isn’t just one of Winterbottom’s best films, it’s also one of his most important to date.” 

                     - Scott Menzel, We Live Entertainment

“A hilarious film about the dangers of capitalism…. One of Winterbottom's better movies, which is saying a lot, given the quality of his oeuvre.”
