The plot centers on a major Boston bank in the city's financial district that is laundering money for the drug cartel. Numbers don't add up at one of the world's largest banks in Boston. Anyone who knows anything about the audit is pursued, then disappears. Based on the page-turning novel by Thomas Hammond (adapted screenplay by David Morwick), The Audit shows us just how far underground white collar crime can go, descending into a world involving terrorist organizations, drug cartels, money laundering, trafficking and illegal transactions across international borders.
- Auditor Jack Healey (William McNamara: Stealing Home, Copycat, Doing Time on Maple Drive) and bank manager Sean McDonough (David Morwick: The Trouble With Billy, Against the Law, Little Erin Merryweather), know too much and find themselves caught in the middle of a web of lies and deceit with no escape. They know they could be next to vanish but nowhere seems safe. The Audit is a harrowing and gripping political thriller where fact is much stranger than fiction and what seems on the surface like a conspiracy theory, leaves a long trail of blood. Directed by Marcus Slabine (Nick and Nicky, The Break In, Janice and the Golden Fleece) the cast also features Deborah Twiss (Kickass, White Collar, Law and Order) and Josh Berresford (Dante's Cove, Aleksandr's Price, The Way I See Things),—Anonymous.
- I had a sinking feeling during the film that he would go down .McNamara is equally convincing because in a sense, he is playing two roles here. Clean direction from Marcus Slabine. It's shot in a claustrophobic way that mirrors the world that these characters are trapped in.
- If there was a downfall of this movie, like most of these shorts, it's that it's not a full-length feature.
Other methods, such as a desk or document review audit, may be employed independently or in support of the three general types of audits.
Some audits are named according to their purpose or scope. The scope of a department or function audit is a particular department or function. The purpose of a management audit relates to management interests, such as assessment of area performance or efficiency.
An audit may also be classified as internal or external, depending on the interrelationships among participants. Internal audits are performed by employees of your organization. External audits are performed by an outside agent. Internal audits are often referred to as first-party audits, while external audits can be either second-party or third-party.
