The weekend of September 30th, 2023, saw the release of Dumb Money by director Craig Gillespie and writers Lauren Schuker Blum, Rebecca Angelo, and Ben Mezrich. Dumb Money tells the story of Reddit user Keith Gill/Roaring Kitty (Paul Dano) in the WallStreetBets forum. Roaring Kitty is the one who flipped the script on Wall Street insiders.

He took a failing company stock, GameStop, and transformed it. GameStop stock went from $3 all the way up to $483. This became a true David vs. Goliath story as the little man found a way to turn the tide on Wall Street hedge fund managers.
