Suburbicon

A little slice of heaven.


Suburbicon
The Coen/Clooney combo is back with another offbeat film. Suburbicon is a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns... the perfect place to raise a family, and in the summer of 1959, the Lodge family is doing just that. But the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as the husband and father must navigate the town’s dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence. This is a tale of very flawed people making very bad choices. This is Suburbicon.

Herman Eloff quote iconThe film starts out all sunshine and roses before sliding into a pit of hell. It will leave you uncomfortable and with a lot of questions – which is a good thing.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconOverall, I was disappointed by the film, not only due to its missed opportunities, but also by the inclusion of a separate storyline -- with a noticeably different tone -- that serves as nothing more than an obvious message of being blinded by hate and not realizing what true dangers might be lurking next door in suburbia.

Tomatometer quote iconA disappointing misfire for director George Clooney, Suburbicon attempts to juggle social satire, racial commentary, and murder mystery -- and ends up making a mess of all three.
