If you go back to the time of J.P. Morgan, the world of high finance was completely wholesale. The prestigious investment banks on Wall Street appealed exclusively to large corporations, governments, and to extremely wealthy individuals.
The phenomenon of vampires has always appealed to me. Everyone kind of likes a vampire story because it almost could be true.

Jennifer Jason Leigh
