Set against a backdrop of international finance and intrigue in New York and Peru, Oliver's Deal weaves an intricate tapestry of exploits, corruption, familial bonds, and human redemption that is as heartrending as it is troubling. Oliver Campbell, an American businessman played sympathetically by Stephen Dorff, finds himself torn between the icy corporate CEO portrayed to the tee by Academy Award nominee David Strathairn, and the poverty stricken Peruvian boy who tends the family's sheep and llamas while dreaming of a new life. Though cold hard greed propels the story, the suffering that eventually seeps in alters the trajectory and softens the hearts of some of the more hardcore characters. In this intense drama that keeps you speculating throughout the interwoven stories, we see people from vastly different walks of life facing situations no one has prepared them for. With a gifted international and American cast and outstanding cinematography, director Barney Elliot tells a story that is unpredictable, emotional and ultimately questioning whether the end can justify the means.

- Svetlana Krotek

Due to the international success of his first short film, True Colours, Barney Elliot was one of six filmmakers selected for the prestigious Cannes Cinefondation Writing Fellowship (La Residence), where he lived in Paris for five months (October 2007 - February 2008) and wrote the first two drafts of his feature script Oliver's Deal.

Barney resides in Lima, Peru, where he works as a commercial director. His most recent short film, Ultimo Recurso (Last Resort), premiered in November 2010 at FENACO, one of Peru's largest film festivals, and won the Best Short Fiction Film award. It made its US film premiere at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Barney completed his post-graduate degree at The London Film School in 2003.
