Plot Arthur Edens (Wilkinson), a lawyer defending an agro-chemical corporation against a class-action suit, is overwhelmed by guilt and cracks up. Michael Clayton (Clooney), his law firm’s ‘fixer’, is sent to sort Arthur out, but the corporation deploy even dirtier tricks to solve the problem.
Verdict This offers moments of suspense, some pointed scenes and star charisma, but it’s also a touch confused. Heads will be
scratched before they roll.
