The Company Men Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: Bobby Walker (Ben Affleck) is living the proverbial American dream: great job, beautiful family, shiny Porsche in the garage. When corporate downsizing leaves him and co-workers Phil Woodward (Chris Cooper) and Gene McClary (Tommy Lee Jones) jobless, the three men are forced to re-define their lives as men, husbands and fathers.

Bobby soon finds himself enduring enthusiastic life coaching, a job building houses for his brother-in-law (Kevin Costner) that does not play to his executive skill set, and perhaps -- the realization that there is more to life than chasing the bigger, better deal. With humor, pathos, and keen observation, writer-director John Wells (the creator of "ER") introduces us to the new realities of American life.

Review: The Company Men is a serious and relevant drama.  The cast is all-star from Ben Affleck to Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper and Kevin Costner.  This is a film about those that define themselves by their jobs and the higher-ups that get cocky and bring about their own karma.  A major company lets a series of employees go and we get to see how each of their lives are affected, along with their self-worth and their marriages.  This is a great drama..very timely and certainly something everyone should see.

Interest Range: Drama
