THE BEST-SLAYED PLANS OF MICE AND MEN, US, 129 MIN
By 1950s standards, it should be the perfect crime. A timid husband (Matt Damon) wants his wheelchairbound wife (Julianne Moore) out of the picture, mainly so he can replace her with her sketchy twin sister (Moore again). With every part of the plan primed to fall into place, only one variable remains: how much does the unhappy couple’s only child, a small boy, know about what is going on? Directed by George Clooney from a script by the Coen Brothers ( Fargo), this twisted tale of domestic evil carries a comic edge which could divide viewers.
