Michael Clayton

Michael Clayton (George Clooney) is the attorney every law firm has. He is the man behind the scenes that "fixes" things and one could say wrongs all rights. Now his firm's highest profile case is crumbling and their dream attorney is living in a nightmare. Mike starts to do his job and then pauses...

The film initially starts to ramble and meander but towards the end you realize it was with a purpose. The plot is simple but the fine acting all around and the deft direction of Tony Gilroy makes it memorable.
