When you watch “The Laundromat” try to think of it as a fairy tale that really happened. Based on the non-fiction book “Secrecy World: Inside the Panama Papers investigation of illicit money networks and the global elite” by Jake Bernstein, the movie follows Ellen Martin (Meryl Streep) after a tragic event leads her to investigate a fake insurance policy and into the trail of a corrupt Panama City law firm. Jürgen Mossack (Gary Oldman) and Ramón Fonseca (Antonio Banderas) are the founding partners of the law firm who have a vested interest in helping the world’s wealthiest people become even wealthier.  Brought to you by the writer of “The Informant” (Scott Z. Burns) and the director of Ocean’s Eleven (Steven Soderbergh) the film looks like a light-hearted exposé of bribery, corruption, and money laundering. In theaters September 27 and on Netflix October 18.
