|Comments||The biographical drama thriller Billionaire Boys Club explores themes of betrayal, lies, deceit, fraud, self-interest and -preservation at all costs, lifestyles of rich kids, con artists, murder, pretence, trying to fit in, friendship, risky investments, corruption and spending money you don't really possess. Themes, and the narrative about the BBC's complex business model, are complex and mature and likely to be confusing for cognitively immature viewers, and quite difficult to grasp. Themes dealing with pretence, shady investment deals, lying, betrayal, deception and selfishness may also be morally misleading to viewers under the age of 16 years who are still developing an independent moral system and values, as they may walk away with the message that wealth and success can only be achieved through deception, corruption and dishonesty. Younger teenagers are particularly at risk for being influenced by morally misleading messages, as they are highly susceptible to media influences. This risk is intensified as the young protagonists are portrayed as attractive and (at least initially successful) anti-heroes. There is a sense of threat and menace as contained in the murders and concealment of the bodies, based on true events, which may be upsetting and disturbing to viewers under 16 years.|

What the Critics say
Herschelle Benjamin Spacey se jongste fliek ver van kol.
Alex Isaacs This Wolf of Wall Street-like film has all the right elements to be a fantastic film: a well-versed director, a complex true-story and a stellar cast, but it squanders it. It takes all that great potential and turns it into glossy montages, soulless speeches about aspiring to be successful purely by having money and moments that seemed designed to made into gifs about being rich.
