My girlfriend is currently taking online courses on financial analysis for her own personal development. The content can be really dry for her at times. To spice up her learning, I recently suggested that she watch the movie, The Big Short. The film came out in 2015 and is based on the 2010 book by renowned author Michael Lewis, The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine. Both the movie and book depict the real-life experience of a few groups of investors who foresaw the 2008-09 US housing and financial crisis and profited from it. When the movie first came out, I was so excited that I helped organise an outing to watch it with a group of friends who are also keen investors. I remember being captivated by the film. After recommending The Big Short to my girlfriend (she loves the movie too – yay!), I decided to rewatch
