Smarting from a calamitous appearance before a government committee, retail billionaire Sir Richard ‘Greedy’ McCreadie (Steve Coogan) turns his attention to planning lavish celebrations for his 60th birthday on the Greek island of Mykonos. Amidst gaudy super-rich trappings and tantrums, a parade of characters (including damaged family members, disaffected employees and Syrian refugees) expose the life of a man both celebrated as ‘the King of the High Street’ and deplored as ‘the unacceptable face of capitalism’. Bumbling writer Nick (David Mitchell) has been hired as McCreadie’s biographer and tries to make sense of it all. Michael Winterbottom’s provocative, intelligent satire is biting and brilliant. MH
