Gold movie quotes help tell the story portrayed in the film of two men who find a gold mine in Indonesia. The crime adventure film, which is based on real events, was written by Patrick Massett and John Zinman. Stephen Gaghan directed Gold, which opened theatrically in the United States on January 27, 2017.

In Gold, Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey) tries his best to support himself and his wife, Kay (Bryce Dallas Howard), but he's not especially successful. So one night, after dreaming of a gold mine in Indonesia, he enlists the help of geologist Michael Acosta (Édgar Ramírez) to see if his dream was true.

Not only do Mike and Kenny find gold in Indonesia, but they find a gold mine worth $30 billion. Kenny thinks all is well, opens a successful mining company and thinks he's finally caught his break in life. But many, including the Indonesian government, come after the gold and compromise Kenny's plans.

Also starring Corey Stoll, Toby Kebbel and Craig T. Nelson, Gold opened in theaters alongside other January 2017 films such as 20th Century Women, The Founder, xXx: Return of Xander Cage, and Split.

    I Had a Dream

    Kenny: Mike Acosta!
    Mike: What are we talking about here?
    Kenny: I had a dream. Indonesia, that's where we'll find the gold.

    Approaching his new partner, Kenny explains a dream he had about finding gold in Indonesia. While Mike seems to buy into what Kenny is selling in this Gold movie quote, the fact that he's going off of someone else's dream is a bit questionable.

        I'm Touching a Tiger

        Mike: Wells cut a deal. Wells cut a deal with him.
        Kenny: This isn't a deal.
        Local: No, boss, no deal
        Kenny: Open it... I'm touching a tiger! 

        In order to get access to the area where the gold mine sits, Kenny had to make a deal with a local protecting the area. Though the local seems to change the rules in the middle of these Gold movie quotes, at least Kenny gets to touch a tiger, which is pretty cool.

          Video: YouTube

          Kenny: So if you'll take a second, look over the plan, well, you will see what I see and that's money. 
          Potential Client: Not our money
          Kay: Baby, where are you going?
          Kenny: This gold business wrote me off years ago but it's amazing how a little gold dust can change everything. 

          Frustrated that he can't seem to make money in the gold business, Kenny takes some of his wife's jewelry, heads to a pawn shop and cashes in. He's heading out on a new mission in these Gold movie quotes, determined to change his luck.
