Since Forbes contributor Kelly Richmond Pope says she uses film to teach accounting to her students because, she writes, “numbers tell the best stories,” she has come to discover while composing this year’s syllabus that film could also teach entrepreneurs about fraud schemes. Companies lose five percent of their annual revenues to payroll fraud, cash theft, as well as expense fraud, and entrepreneurs are especially vulnerable because so little of their time or resources are invested in internal controls. The five films Pope recommends for entrepreneurs are: Steve James’s Abacus: Small Enough to Jail (2016); Netflix’s Ozark (2017-); Pope’s own All the Queen’s Horses (2017); Frank Darabont’s The Shawshank Redemption (1994); and AMC’s Breaking Bad (2008-2013).
