Bankrolled is a Mexican film. The film is about two friends who pitch the idea of a bold new social justice app. The following day, they received a notification saying they had received funding for the app and now had to create it.

In the end, one of the friends, Polo, took all the credit for the idea, and to get his revenge, another friend coded the app, hid the visibility of likes, and made public ranking invisible, making their app go down. Due to heavy criticism, users uninstalled their “SignNow” app, and the idea lost its potential.

Duration2h 13m

Moneyball starring lead actors include the famous Holywood actor you must have heard of, i.e., Brad Pitt. The storyline is about a frustrated owner whose baseball team can’t afford big-money players but will soon.

The cast is also imposing.
