Screenwriter Tony Gilroy gives his directorial debut with Michael Clayton, and George Clooney plays the title character, a «fixer» at a large corporate law firm who is caught between professional responsibility and personal principle, when an attorney and close friend named Arthur Edens shows signs that he might jeopardize a class action suit brought against one of their biggest clients. As a director, Gilroy has a good storytelling sense; Clayton's unraveling reality is documented with methodical precision, demonstrating how predictably disorganized his own life is, despite a high-paying job that requires him to sweep indiscretions under a massive corporate rug.
