President of Roadside Attractions Howard Cohen was really excited for the Hamptons advanced screening which was also the East Coast premiere of the movie. When he saw the movie at Sundance in January he was riveted by the amazing performance of Richard Gere in Arbitrage and the timeliness of the subject of the movie.

Writer and director Nicholas Jarecki was excited to be in the Hamptons for the premiere, joking that the Hamptons has the best air. He was incredible grateful to all the people who worked on the film, stating, "this is not the work of one or two people, it took several million collective hours to create". Jarecki had a great time making the film which was filmed on the streets of New York last April and May. A number of the people who worked on the film came out to support the East Coast premiere including producers Laura Bickford, Kevin Turen, Justin Nappi, executive producer Ron Curtis and co-producer Mike Heller.

Richard Gere was glowing with pride when he spoke about Arbitrage. He stated, "It doesn't happen very often when you get terrific script, end up making a movie with hundreds of people, it goes through all those permutations and it is as good as you hope it is going to be". He was also amazed that after going through the list of who was invited to the Hamptons screening he knew almost everyone invited which is extremely rare and he was excited to share the film with friends.

"Arbitrage" is a taut and alluring suspense thriller about love, loyalty, and high finance starring Richard Gere, Susan Sarandon, Tim Roth, Brit Marling, Laetitia Casta, and Nate Parker. The film was written and directed by Nicholas Jarecki, and had its world premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. It was produced by Laura Bickford, Kevin Turen, Justin Nappi, and Robert Salerno, and executive produced by Brian Young, Mohammed Al Turki, Lisa Wilson, Stanislaw Tyczynski, Lauren Versel, Maria Teresa Areda and Ron Curtis.

The film opens on September 14th, 2012. For more information on "Arbitrage" or to watch to trailer visit: arbitrage-film.com.
