Full Speech: Adapted Screenplay


Thank you so much to the Academy. Also thank you to Michael Lewis for writing an amazing book that inspired Charles and I so much. Thank you to Paramount for taking a risk on a movie that’s about financial esoterica and believing in it. Thank you to my beautiful wife, Shira Piven, there she is. And my children, Lili Rose, my two daughters, Lili Rose and Pearl, I love you so much. Most of all, if you don’t want big money to control government, don’t vote for candidates that take money from big banks, oil or weirdo billionaires: Stop!


Thank you very much Plan B. Thank you very much Paramount. To my wife, Mili [Hebrew]. To my kids, I am so happy to be your father. Thank you.
