The Company Men Reviews
Ben Affleck. Chris cooper. Tommy lee jones. Maria bello and Kevin Costner are terrific as is the script by writer director John Wells.
Worth a look.
Its a sanitised, pedestrian walk through the impact of unemployment. There is a genuine horror story here of corporate greed and stupidity bringing our financial system to the brink of collapse but its barely hinted at. Its hard to find any sympathy for these characters who would have been part of that folly. The plight of the millions of ordinary people whose lives were devastated isnt even given a nod.
The standard issue saccharin dipped ending is an insult to those millions
The cast is impressive and direction, cut and performances are OK.
