Michael Clayton

Screenwriter Tony Gilroy makes his directorial debut with this dramatic thriller about burned-out corporate lawyer Michael Clayton (George Clooney), who's built a career on cleaning up his clients' messes. When a guilt-ridden colleague (Tom Wilkinson) threatens the settlement of a multimillion-dollar case, Clayton faces his biggest challenge ever. Tilda Swinton (with her first Oscar win), Sydney Pollack and Michael O'Keefe round out the impressive cast.

Michael Clayton is an intellectually charged crime drama with intense dialogged confrontations executed with emotionally tense acting. A very sophisticated plot that accompanies white collar stature with a riveting real-life character balance that draws you in the depths of each individual. This film was amazing.
