The Company Men


companymenWhen a Boston shipbuilding giant starts downsizing, Bobby Walker (Ben Affleck) loses his job, but heā€™s far from the only victim. TV producer and writer John Wellsā€™s feature directing debut is a comment on the Great Recession of 2008, where we follow several white-collar workers and how they react to shockingly changing circumstances, especially Affleckā€™s character who finds it very hard to accept his fate. An angry attack on corporations that lose their moral compass, and a celebration of small-scale business. Well-acted and compelling, but a greater diversity among those laid off might have been even better.

2010-U.S.-Britain. 104 min. Color. Written and directed byĀ John Wells. Cast: Ben Affleck (Bobby Walker), Tommy Lee Jones (Gene McClary), Chris Cooper (Phil Woodward), Kevin Costner (Jack Dolan), Maria Bello, Rosemarie DeWittā€¦ Craig T. Nelson.
