Here is a short review of "Greed" movie plot summary.
The film takes a non-linear approach to the life of Sir (Steve Coogan) Richard "Greedy" McCreadie, a billionaire fashion mogul. After a recent damaging appearance at a government inquiry into financial and ethical abuse within the fashion industry, McCreadie has decided to publish his memories and has hired Nick (David Mitchell), a socially awkward journalist, to ghostwrite it for him. Nick's research into McCreadie's background leads to flashbacks charting his rise from relatively humble (though still affluent and privileged) circumstances as an outcast and rebellious student at an unnamed British public school, to his rise in the 1970s and 1980s as a powerful high-street fashion merchant, to the government hearing. It becomes clear that, despite McCreadie's self-image as a hard-nosed and savvy businessman with multiple celebrity friends, much of his wealth is in fact based on ruthless exploitation and financial corruption, including a reliance on sweatshops in Southeast Asia for his fashion lines, tax avoidance, asset stripping and similar questionably ethical financial dealings.
The present of the film focusses on the build-up to McCreadie's 60th birthday party, a Gladiator-themed celebration on the island of Mykonos, which are intended to allow McCreadie to relax after the hearings. However, even there matters are not progressing smoothly; the centrepiece of the celebrations, a Roman arena where a mock-gladiatorial fight against a lion will be staged, is poorly-constructed because lax local builders rely mainly on undocumented immigrant labour, and the lion itself is quite passive, much to McCreadie's annoyance. Furthermore, many of McCreadie's celebrity guests are distancing themselves from him due to the damage to his reputation, and a crowd of Syrian refugees have constructed a makeshift camp on the public beach adjoining his property and refuse to leave. Tensions also exist among his family, including his ex-wife Samantha (Isla Fisher), who acts as the public CEO of his family and for whom he continues to have lingering attraction despite having subsequently married a much younger trophy wife; his daughter Lily (Sophie Cookson), who is starring with her boyfriend Fabian (Ollie Locke) in a reality-TV show being filmed alongside the celebrations; and his neglected son Finn (Asa Butterfield), who holds an Oedipal obsession with replacing his father.
