THE COMPANY MEN (M) ★★★
Stars: Ben Affleck, Chris Cooper
CONTINUING with flicks about the GFC havoc, this drama centres on downsizing and business execs having to find new lives when trouble hits the shipping company for which they work. It follows the plight of three workers including top-notch sales executive ( Ben Affleck), examining the impact losing his job has on his identity, family and life outlook. The sombre material harps on the one message and is not as deep as it thinks it is. But it’s still wellintentioned and acted by the ensemble cast.
Extras: Commentary, making-of, alternate ending and deleted scenes. Not viewed.
