MICHAEL CLAY­TON

NINE, Satur­day, 11.40pm, M ( 2007)

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.
