The Accountant: The Movie

IMGCAP(2)] Have you seen it yet?

The new movie, starring Ben Affleck and Anna Kendrick, is an action adventure movie acknowledging that, yes, even accountants can have an alternative life.

Christian Wolfe, played by Affleck, is a high-functioning autistic accountant who does taxes and forensic accounting by day but moonlights as an assassin. The movie is suspenseful and well-written and would even be enjoyable by those not familiar with the handful of accounting references.    

After spending a beautiful day celebrating October 15th at the outdoor range practicing with a sniper rifle, my accounting manager and I went to see the movie.


Who said accountants can't have multiple talents?
