Duration: 2 Hours 5 Minutes

(2007) Potent legal drama focusing on a few days in the complicated life of the title character (George Clooney), a "fixer" for a high-powered law firm whose managing partner (Sydney Pollack) dispatches him to deal with the apparent nervous breakdown of the firm's top litigator (Tom Wilkinson) and with its effects on a multimillion-dollar class-action lawsuit against an agrochemical corporation whose chief counsel (Tilda Swinton) is prepared to protect her company's interests by whatever means necessary. Writer-director Tony Gilroy's masterfully absorbing film begins at a gallop and the pace -- driven forward by uniformly intense performances -- never slackens. Much rough and crude and some crass language, frequent use of profanity and one scene of a female character in clinging underwear. (A-III – adults). (R – restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian). Cinemax (cable)
