If any of you wonder what it's like to get summarily dismissed from a bank, together with hundreds of your colleagues, from being busy on a phone call, to 15 minutes later being out on the street holding a box of your possessions - the opening of this film outlines it pretty well.
HR - 'I'm really sorry we're letting you go'
Employee - 'But I'm busy on a deal this this morning, there's this really urgent matter we really have to resolve this week!'
HR - 'No, you don't understand, we're letting you go, and this man [here] will help escort you out. But if there's any way in coming weeks we might help with this transition in your life, here's a card for a counselling service that will help you'.
That was the day I vowed to never be employed (vs self-employed) again.
I haven't got past the opening couple of chapters yet, but so far, it's absolutely and eerily spot on.
'Margin Call' - (2011) Kevin spacey, Jeremy Irons etc. IMDB rates as 7.1/10.
