THE COMPANY MEN (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

The Company Men—based on a true story—is creative, interesting, and worth watching. Without preaching, the film graphically reminds us that America works and America works best from the ground up. The R-rating seems unnecessary. There is some minor language.

Storyline

Bobby Walker (Ben Affleck) loses his corporate position, can’t find another comparable position, and downsizes to a manual labor job working for brother-in-law, Jack Dolan (Kevin Costner), who builds houses for a living. After losing home, cars, and credit standing, Bobby’s wife returns to work to supplement family income. The reduced lifestyle requires the Walker family to return to the parental home.
