Michael Clayton

A two-hour movie at the festival? Yikes. But then it's with George Clooney, so who would complain? Certainly not me. It's a thriller. Many plot twists and turns. Totally captivating.

Clooney is a lawyer who begins to question the work he does -- especially when he sees what is happening to his former mentor and co-worker Tom Wilkinson. Is he going to be in trouble himself too?

Tilda Swinton is great as his nemesis at a corporate giant company with secrets to hide.

Great performances all around.
