Warner Bros' has given a fall preview of their own starting with Michael
Movie Stills: Michael Clayton
Michael Clayton (George Clooney) is an in-house
"fixer" at one of the largest corporate law firms in New York.
A former criminal prosecutor, Clayton takes care of Kenner, Bach & Ledeen's
dirtiest work at the behest of the firm's co-founder Marty Bach (Sydney
Pollack). Though burned out and hardly content with his job as a fixer,
his divorce, a failed business venture and mounting debt have left Clayton
inextricably tied to the firm. At U/North, meanwhile, the career of litigator
Karen Crowder (Tilda Swinton) rests on the multi-million dollar settlement
of a class action suit that Clayton’s firm is leading to a seemingly
successful conclusion. But when Kenner Bach’s brilliant and guilt-ridden
attorney Arthur Edens (Tom Wilkinson) sabotages the U/North case, Clayton
faces the biggest challenge of his career and his life.
