On the surface, Greed is entertaining and exciting – Steve Coogan as Sir Richard McCreadie is planning his 60th birthday party, full of the rich and famous, on the idyllic Greek island of Mykonos. But as the party prep develops, the sheen loses its lustre and the grim reality of McCreadie's fortune comes to light.
David Mitchell (Peep Show) co-stars as Nick, a meek biographer tasked with telling McCreadie's story – he's the one who leafs through the high street mogul's history, finding how he came to be one of the richest men in the country. Beyond Nick's research, Coogan gives his own odious performance and highlights just why the film's title can be so dangerous.
A whole string of stars pop up in cameos at the party, and Isla Fisher and Asa Butterfield also feature heavily in the film. If you liked The Wolf of Wall Street but aren't afraid of a more sobering watch, one that might move the mouse away from that next 'confirm order' button on Zara – bookmark Greed for when it hits cinemas on 21 February 2020.
