Corporate America in Crisis

>The Company Men (USA, 2010)
dir. John Wells
rating: ✶✶

What happens in corporate America when executives are downsized and fired? It is masochistic to watch their comfortable socially predictable lives deteriorate with inevitable impact on families. There is one suicide in the mix, but at the end there is somehow a hopeful solution in declining America for the people we have been watching with no great interest.

Normally I don't post reviews of films that merit only two stars. However, this one is a tale for the times.
