Opening in theaters February 19 is a different take on love at the cinema — a film that looks at The Good Guy, starring Alexis Bledel.
Sure, Wall Street has
taken a hit in this economy, but the guys that man the floor of the Stock Exchange are still after the same thing — money.
Scott Porter plays Tommy, one of those brokers enjoying his success in New York City. With Tommy’s love by his side, Beth (Alexis
Bledel), he is also beginning to think about a future with her to make the dream complete.
In The Good Guy, when Bryan Greenberg’s Daniel arrives at the firm, Tommy decides to become the newbie’s mentor. Daniel is much more laid back, less excited by money — but
Tommy believes he can give his new friend a life makeover.
As the two guys’ success increases, their big-time Wall Street broker cred is severely hurting their personal lives — especially Tommy’s romance with Beth.
Julio DePietro is The Good Guy writer-director and crafted the film from years of working as a broker on the trading floors of Chicago. DePietro takes audiences inside the much debated of
late culture of Wall Street.
In The Good Guy, DePietro illustrates what it means to choose right over wrong in an industry that has chosen the latter more often of late.
Bledel continues her rise as an actress to watch after her scene-stealing turn across Lauren Graham in Gilmore Girls and her
star-making performance in Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
