i'm 72, retired and very concerned about the economic environment our young people now face (due to the undue trust that my generation placed on our 'government' the past 30 years.) this movie is right on about what has happened. blame human nature and the unbridled success our country has had since ww2. this movie is superbly cast and acted and reflects the facts in an outstanding way. those of us who have been in the workplace for over 15 years will be blown away by the truth of it all. in the end,though it is somewhat depressing, hope for the american ideal shines thru!
I just saw company men and feel a little undecided about how much I liked or disliked the movie. It certainly made me think about a lot of things, both philosophical and practical. It also made me think of how relative it is to "suffer" due to economic conditions, especially in this country vs. say, a more third world environment. It was pretty well acted and had a very solid cast, so I would say, check it out and draw your own conclusions. It might just motivate you to start saving and reorganize your priorities, which is a pretty powerful thing to get from a movie.
Paul Giamatti stars in Win Win, a comedy directed by Tom McCarthy. I have never heard of Tom McCarthy before but Paul Giamatti is one of my favorite actors. He plays Mike Flaherty, a down on his luck lawyer and high school wrestling coach who is trying to support his family but not doing a great job. He is looking for ways to make more money when he stumbles on an old man (his client) who is about to become a ward of the state. Instead, he steps up and tells the courts that he will become the old man’s legal guardian. Instead of doing this, he puts him in a nursing home. This is where the movie gets really funny. I really loved this film because although it had some sad points, the movie was mostly happy and hilarious and left me with a good feeling. I will suggest thins film to anyone, and I will probably end up seeing it again.
The Company Men, directed by John Wells (of ER), is a drama about a bunch of characters who work for a company that is being downsized. This movie has an all star cast, which includes Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper, Kevin Costner, Ben Affleck and Maria Bello. These are some of my favorite actors so I was very excited to see this film. During these economic times, this film really will hit home with a lot of people. This movie dives deep into many aspects of life that get affected by economic issues including friendships, family bonds and loyalties. The film doesn’t hold anything back, which may turn some viewers off because they are looking for escape, not a cold dose of economic reality. I did really enjoy this film. Although the movie was very sad at times, the acting was amazing and with a handful of my favorite actors, I was very impressed by it. I will be suggesting that my friends see this film.
Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper, Kevin Costner, Maria Bello star in this wonderful film about harsh realities of life. I really liked this film even though it was not really about the reality of life of blue-collar workers, rather about people who make well over six figures a year. The blue-collar lifestyle was touched a bit in the film but not enough in my opinion. Kevin Costner, who plays Walker’s brother in-law, was amazing and he stole the show with his performance. Ben Afflec was surprisingly good at playing Bobby Walker, and I am starting to believe that he can be a very good actor. The cast was the main drive of the movie, they all did such a good job developing their characters and make them reletable and likable. This movie has heart and humor and that is what I seek in the movie. I definitely recommend seeing this film.
The Company Men directed by John Wells and starring Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper, Kevin Costner, Ben Affleck, Maria Bello is a film about three men who have to reinvent their lives after they have been fired from their jobs. This film was kind of sad but it is portraying what is happening in the United States right now, so I guess the reality is sad. The film is full of emotions and it takes you in and does not let you go till the very end. I felt that the main characters were people I know, I could relate to them and feel for their losses and be happy for their victories. Ben Affleck is not one of my favourite actors but he definitely did an amazing job in this film. Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper and Kevin Costner were excellent as well. I enjoyed this film very much and I do believe it is a story that has to be told, especially in this day and age.
