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.
