George Clooney ( pictured) is the eponymous “fixer” for a New York law firm, who’s called upon by the firm’s lawyers to manipulate the wheels of justice in favour of high- profile clients. Clayton’s latest assignment – to rein in his emotionally unstable friend ( Tom Wilkinson) – thrusts him into a crisis of conscience. If you like the litigation- themed fireworks of TV’s Damages, this will have you riveted. The directorial debut of Tony Gilroy ( Bourne screenwriter) features ripping dialogue and an intense build- up to the final reel. Clooney and Wilkinson are sensational.
