Middle-aged lawyer Michael Clayton (George Clooney) is a fixer who clears up complex or dirty cases on behalf of corporate clients. But he has a number of personal and professional problems. His family life is messy (he's a lone parent and his brother has ran up large debts), he is struggling with a gambling problem, his career appears to be going no-where - and he has tired of fixing other people's mistakes. An old friend and colleague, Arthur Edens (Tom Wilkonson), has been working on an important case on behalf of a large client for eight years but the case is not going well and his friend's behaviour is causing concern. Clayton is called in to fix the problem. As he discovers more about the case, Clayton realises that the defendents' case is correct and when his friend (Edens) dies, Clayton himself becomes a target for the dark forces that defend corporate interests.
George Clooney gives it all as a Fixer. The Dialogues and scenes are great and reverberating. Plot is an ultimate thriller. The Scene where George sees three horses and later how it is connected in the Realm an conquest book is chilling.
