The Company Men (2010)

Type :   Production countries :  

  Summary  

The film, set in and around Boston, Massachusetts, analyzes the effects of corporate downsizing. Ben Affleck plays an aggressive white-collar corporate ladder-climbing employee who, after losing his six-figure salary, gradually loses the trappings of his white-collar life and ultimately has to take a job installing drywall with his blue-collar brother-in-law, played by Kevin Costner. Chris Cooper plays a middle manager who has risen from the factory floors to the corporate offices. He also loses his six-figure salary job, but because of his age is finding himself unemployable. The pressures on the two men grow as weeks and months pass by with no prospects of employment. On the other side of the coin, the cushy lives of executive management are shown with both Tommy Lee Jones and Craig T. Nelson playing characters who suffer no misfortune during the trying times, until Jones' character is served his walking papers. Maria Bello plays the senior HR manager who delivers the bad news to staff whose jobs are cut. Jones is clearly in a much more comfortable position after being fired, and seemingly begins a form of retirement, seeking no other employment. However, the effects of the downsizing on others, along with his own values favoring hard work, weigh on his conscience.
