Georges plays a guest role as Greece’s ambassador to France in «Adults in the Room», directed by Costa-Gavras, based on the book of the same title by Yanis Varoufakis.
The film retraces Varoufakis’ five months of negotiations as the newly elected Minister of Finance in 2015, battling with the technocratic apparatus in place at the head of Europe. Costa-Gavras describes his film as “a Greek tragedy in the present time”, no doubt because it became clear that despite the rational and beneficial solutions proposed by Varoufakis, Europe’s leaders’ overriding goal was to “execute” the anti-austerity government as an example to other European countries facing a budgetary deficit, and thereby plunging the Greek nation into economic depression for generations to come.
