Toronto 2016: 'Abacus: Small Enough to Jail' Review

I've heard some grumblings here in Toronto that the latest from Steve James is a little too slight or dry. I grant that Abacus is a pretty conventional documentary, but it's nicely observed and emotional, recounting the tale of the only bank that was charged in the wake of the 2008 financial collapse. I reviewed Abacus for Screen International.
