2. Barbarians at the Gates (1993)
A mostly forgotten 1993 humour-tinged docudrama depicting the first largest private equity deal in which KKR took over RJR Nabisco giving its incumbent CEO a bitter defeat! A movie about RJR Nabisco’s leveraged buyout (LBO). While the film takes significant creative liberties in depicting this true event, audiences will be startled and amused by Nabisco CEO F. Ross Johnson’s incompetence and greed, as well as the behind-the-scenes negotiations and skulduggery surrounding this famous LBO.
