Based on the 1951 short story by the late American author Kurt Vonnegut, The Foster Portfolio was adapted and directed by Danielle Katvan (though she could not fit in the best line in the novella: "Herbert said her name was Alma, which seemed entirely possible"). If follows the story of Jim Crane, an investment advisor, who stumbles across a man living from hand to mouth but with a secret fortune: Herbert Foster. But just why is Foster so disinterested in his inheritance? It is, without doubt, an extremely well-made and engaging film that closely follows the novella. A period piece, it looks like it must have cost at least $100k to make, meaning Katvan must have had some rich benefactors and/or pulled in lots of favours. If you like the short drama The Foster Portfolio by Danielle Katvan, be sure to rate it and share it.
