As showcased on the front page of The Wall Street Journal, A Price Worth Paying? is a new drama movie showing how important it is for boards of directors to monitor all risks affecting their companies and for boards to react in the right way when a crisis strikes. The movie focuses on the difficult issues of executive compensation, the evaluation of risk around an acquisition in an emerging market, the depth of enquiry of an Audit Committee and the adequacy of the response to a serious whistleblower allegation. It reinforces the importance of setting the right “tone from the top” and the importance of directors asking all of the right questions.

Watch the trailer.

Written by former Dechert partner Duncan Wiggetts and directed by Nick White, a 2011 BAFTA Short Film Awards nominee, A Price Worth Paying? features an all-star cast of television and film actors.

"'A Price Worth Paying?' is a superb quality film which raises awareness of important issues facing a board in the most dramatic fashion. It has been cleverly designed to provoke uncomfortable, but much needed, debate."
