Despite some of its one-dimensional characters, this drama captures the sacrifices that people make during periods of unemployment.

A bit heavy on the cliches, but this sermon will connect with anyone for whom "the new reality" of today's economy hits close to home

It may not be the "feel good movie of the year," but it is a fascinating look at a very prominent and ongoing situation.

There are some witty observations, but these, along with the use of natural light, have the effect of bringing a bad situation into starker perspective.

The points made are good ones, even if you wish they could work them in a more subtle way. At the very least, it's a hopeful take on a troubling issue, with a genuine belief in old-fashioned Americana values as the key to survival.

has a stinging sense of immediacy and a strong sense of narrative momentum that keeps the multiple stories in balance, as well as judiciously managing sympathy for characters who are usually seen as villains during economic hard times

Excellent performances and a fine use of detail counterbalance a somewhat weak storyline.

... an engrossing, if uneven, ensemble drama featuring strong performances by Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones and especially Chris Cooper as the most desperate of the trio.

Takes an unpopular group - upper management! - and humanises their involvement in screwing the world. Quite the achievement, really.

Unemployment is not a naturally cinematic thing. A far-too-neat conclusion notwithstanding, This is a decent exploration of the psychology of what happens when you loose your job.

A serious, schematic, well-acted film about adjusting to new lifestyles in a changing world...

Gets us on side with a thoughtful, if sentimental, examination of what it takes to find dignity in tough times.

Shadows on the Wall

This downsizing drama might be a bit downbeat, but it's sharply observant and extremely well-played by an impressive cast

A chilling picture of corporate US, where loyalty to employees has been ousted by something called the bottom line.

Capitalism has never looked such a cruel mistress and it's refreshing to see the recession's fallout portrayed in such human terms.

This is London

Wells, whose first feature this is, knows how to shape a movie but it still seems a little like a superior piece of television, adorned by a posse of very watchable stars.

The film stubbornly sticks to its point: that losing your job hurts you and your sense of identity whether you are at the top or the bottom of the ladder.
