Michael Clayton

Michael Clayton

The truth is what he makes it.
  • This is my 'come to court' look.

Our hero, Michael Clayton, is a 'fixer' at a top law firm. It's his job to fix legal messes, whatever it takes. A fellow fixer, pained by his conscience, throws a wobbly in court during an important case, and Michael is roped in to sort out the situation. Michael has some issues of his own though, including a large debt that he has to pay off, and a gambling problem. Complicating matters more is the female corporate lawyer from the client, who is determined to nail his friend. The film is one of this year's top Oscar contenders.
