About the Film
Ben Affleck stars as a family man living the American dream. When corporate downsizing leaves him and co-workers Chris Cooper and Tommy Lee Jones jobless, the three men are forced to re-define their lives as men, husbands, and fathers. After months of unemployment, Affleck’s character finds himself working in construction and learning that there is more to life than chasing the bigger, better deal. With humor, pathos, and keen observation, writer-director John Wells (the creator of ER) introduces us to the new realities of American life. Do not miss this thoughtful, gripping and humorous film which is one of the most meaningful of the year.
