Description

Michael Clayton (George Clooney) is an in-house "fixer" at one of the largest corporate law firms in New York. At the behest of the firm's co- founder Marty Bach (Sydney Pollack), Clayton, a former prosecutor from a family of cops, takes care of Kenner, Bach and Ledeen's dirtiest work. Clayton cleans up clients' messes, handling anything from hit-and-runs and damaging stories in the press to shoplifting wives and crooked politicians. Though burned out and discontented in his job, Clayton is inextricably tied to the firm. At the agrochemical company U/North, the career of in-house chief counsel Karen Crowder (Tilda Swinton) rests on the settlement of the suit that Kenner, Bach and Ledeen is leading to a seemingly successful conclusion. When the firm's top litigator, the brilliant Arthur Edens (Tom Wilkinson), has an apparent breakdown and tries to sabotage the entire case, Marty Bach sends Michael Clayton to tackle this unprecedented disaster and, in doing so, Clayton comes face to face with the reality of who he has become.

    Clooney's best acting in a clear narrative of a real person's life changes. His portrayal of growthtowards integrity is authentic to anyone who has ever challgenged themself to be more humane. So so satisfying a movie. Congrats George. This was your maker imho.

    I watched this movie because I didn't remember seeing it before. By the time I realized that I had seen this movie before, I determined that I would stay awake and see if I could understand what this movie was about. It's a two-hour movie and I fell asleep at 1:44. I rewound and watched the last 15 minutes. I still don't know what this movie is about. I think there are about 60 different, unrelated scenes that were stitched together to make a movie. This is one of the worst movies I have ever had the displeasure of watching. What a waste of time. Save yourself. Go do anything else.

    George Clooney gives a great performance as the main character. Tom Wilkinson and Sydney Pollack offer outstanding support. The story is well told, interesting keeping the viewer tuned in. I really enjoyed this one.
