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.
