Richard Gere has aged well.
At the age of 63, he is still fit, obviously goes to the gym and has kept his hair intact, even though it’s all white by now. His face hasn’t really aged. He doesn’t show signs of plastic surgery or injectables (unlike Billy Crystal who looks manas). He still looks perfect in the role of a rich guy (think Pretty Woman).
In Arbritrage, he plays a troubled hedge fund magnate who wants to protect his family from a series of bad decisions he has made, which have all caught up with him at the same time.

Richard Gere as Robert Miller with his perfect family

and his chica mistress, played by Laeticia Casta

I just had to download it after seeing this trailer on AppleTV.

This movie will make you feel glad you don’t deal in millions of dollars. I swear my driver is better off than this guy.
The only thing that bugs me is the ending. If you’ve had the chance to see it, please explain.

Simple ending. If you have a lot of money, you really can get away with anything.

I’ve always loved Laetitia Casta after seeing her in that Guess TV ad many, many years ago.

Hi! Yes I’ve seen the film. I know the ending was a bummer. But my husband liked it. I guess it just shows how affluent, powerful people have a lot of dark secrets despite their glowing public personas. It takes a lot of maneuvering, back-dealings and in this character’s case–a lot of bad decisions and uncontrollable lust for worldy things (sex, power, money) i.e. having an expensive mistress, investing in derivatives after derivatives (a commentary on the U.S. Wall Street triggered Global Financial Crisis), maintaining an Upper East Side lifestyle etc… Eventually things catch up with you, but then again… Read more »

I want to watch this!  I love Richard Gere.  But why do they always pair him with Susan Sarandon?  I find no chemistry between them. Or is this what is needed in the movie.  Same thing when they were in that movie “Shall We Dance”.  Di sila bagay!  Susan is a good actress but stay away from Richard Gere please.
