(MA15+) Gavin O’Con­nor’s The Ac­coun­tant is about Amer­i­can money. Chris­tian Wolff (Ben Af­fleck) is a highly func­tion­ing autis­tic maths ge­nius who works as an ac­coun­tant for crim­i­nal or­gan­i­sa­tions. Af­fleck is bril­liant in re­veal­ing the nu­ances of this man, es­pe­cially early on as we start to un­der­stand the char­ac­ter. The main story sees Wolff sud­denly un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by se­nior Trea­sury of­fi­cial Ray King (JK Sim­mons), who re­cruits an upand-com­ing ju­nior of­fi­cer, Mary­beth Medina (Cyn­thia Ad­dai-Robinson), to help.
