Weekly Movie Recommendations : 28th June 2008 - 4th July 2008

Michael Clayton (2007)

Genre - Crime/Drama/Thriller

Cast - George Clooney, Tom Wilkinson, Sydney Pollack, Tilda Swinton

Whats It About - An attorney known as the Fixer in his law firm comes across the biggest case of his career that could produce disastrous results for those involved.

Why Should I Watch It - Clooney delivers a rich performance as a hangdog and haunted man who wants to stay on the side of good, but is a little too skilled at moral margin-walking to make that an easy choice in every situation. Swinton glows as a secretly frail Amazon who somehow won't let a tortured conscience prevent her from getting ahead. The final third of the film is as suspenseful as any courtroom drama, without ever resorting to legal-thriller cliches.

Watch a bit right here -
