Michael Clayton – The Review Show 244

We watched the 2007 legal thriller Michael Clayton, written and directed by Tony Gilroy. Michael Clayton is a “fixer” for his law firm, cleaning up messes for their prestigious clients. They’re defending the manufacturer of a potentially carcinogenic pesticide when the head lawyer on that case suffers a mental breakdown, and turns against the client. Michael Clayton has to look after his friend’s wellness and smooth over relations with the client, while investigating claims of evidence that could blow the case wide open, and dealing with his own personal debts that make it difficult for him to turn down any bribes to stay quiet in the face of dangerous corporate misconduct.
