Netflix’s New Comedy About the Panama Papers Scandal Stars Meryl Streep and Antonio Banderas

By

Steven Soderbergh's new Netflix comedy about the Panama Papers has a stellar cast: you've got Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman, and Antonio Banderas. Not only do these amazing performers have a slew of awards and nominations between the three of them, but they've also got a ton of name recognition and profound likability.

In the film, Gary and Antonio play Jurgen Mossack and Ramon Fonseca, who are based on the real lawyers who were caught up in the global corporate scandal that shocked the world.

What's interesting about the film is that both Mossack and Fonseca directly address the camera and seem to illustrate, in absurdist fashion, all of the ways they're able to keep amassing wealth for millionaires all around the world using a bunch of shady dealings and underhanded schemes. What's really great about the movie is that such serious subject matter is handled in a really hilarious matter.
