Wall Street redux

The movie Wall Street, staring Michael Douglas, first hit the silver screen in 1987. It told a fictionalized story that recently proved to be less fiction, more reality. Now Wall Street—Money Never Sleeps has opened and the film is focused on the 2008 financial crisis.

Workplace fiction—which is the genre that Pink Slips and Parting Gifts fits into—is certainly fiction, but it is often not far from harsh reality either.
