Cosmopolis is a contemporary thriller about a young billionaire asset manager (Robert Pattinson) on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan. As a looming financial disaster intensifies, he cynically gambles with his clients’ fortunes and his own. The stakes are enormous, and in the hours that pass, his limousine and life veer toward the end of an era.
