Michael Clayton is the acclaimed and award nominated 2007 crime drama mystery from celebrated screenwriter turned director Tony Gilroy (Dolores Claiborne, The Devil's Advocate, The Bourne Identity). The film revolves around a class action lawsuit filed against a large corporation over a type of pesticide that causes cancer. Arthur Edens (Tom Wilkinson, In the Bedroom, Batman Begins, The Ghost and the Darkness), the attorney assigned by a large New York law firm to defend the company, at one and the same time seems to go crazy and changes sides, deciding to leak damning information to the litigants. In steps Michael Clayton (George Clooney, From Dusk Til Dawn, Out of Sight, O Brother Where Art Thou) - the law firm's 'fixer' - to clean up the mess. In fixing it up, he becomes aware of the information that seems to incriminate the corporation. In short, the corporation has reason to want both Arthur, the original attorney-gone-insane and Clayton eliminated.
