Description

The Hummingbird Project
Directed by Kim Nguyen
Cast: Jesse Eisenberg, Alexander Skarsgård, Salma Hayek, Michael Mando
Genre: Drama
1hr 51mins

Cousins from New York, Vincent (Jesse Eisenberg) and Anton (Alexander Skarsgård) are players in the high-stakes game of high frequency trading, where winning is measured in milliseconds. Vincent is the hustler and Anton is the brains; together they push each other and everyone around them in their quixotic quest to attain the ultimate American Dream.

Embarking on the Herculean task of installing a fiber-optic cable in a straight line between Kansas and New Jersey — so they can yield faster trades and greater riches — the cousins clash with their rapacious former boss, Eva Torres (Salma Hayek), a hedge-fund manager who tries to beat them at their own game using a rival technology. Racing against time, navigating heavy machinery, stubborn landowners, and the elements, Vincent and Anton move mountains to cut through America and get rich faster — only to find redemption and renewal at the end of the line.

From writer-director Kim Nguyen (War Witch, nominated for the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film) comes a modern-day David & Goliath story that is equal parts financial thriller and human drama, excavating the pitfalls and perils of two men who risk everything in order to have it all.
