The best film I've seen in quite a while. George Clooney plays a corporate hatchet man who flies in and terminates people for companies who cannot or will not do it themselves. There's a depressing edge to this film: the more poorly the American economy does , the more work for Clooney's company. The complications are many:a potentially more ruthless understudy; a passionate connection made in the terminally passionless world of airports and airplanes; and the idea(s)/importance of home. The subtleties and depth of the story and characters made this one of best films I've seen in more than a year.
