Attorney Michael Clayton is a fixer, the go-to guy when his powerful New York law firm wants a mess swept under the rug. But now he's handed a crisis even he may not be able to fix. The firm's top litigator in a $3-billion case has gone from advocate to whistleblower. And the more Michael tries to undo the damage, the more he's up against forces that put corporate survival over human life - including Michael's. George Clooney portrays Michael, backed into a career corner that offers little room to fight free in this suspense and star-packed thriller written and directed by Tony Gilroy (writer/co-writer of the Bourne movie trilogy).
