Stream HERE!Our next Rialto Recommends blew our socks off in the fall of 2007 when it was released. Though we didn't open MICHAEL CLAYTON originally in either Berkeley or Santa Rosa we knew it was a true Oscar contender. So when other theatres dropped the film we picked it up in both markets and played it from late in the Fall all the way through the winter to the Oscars where it was nominated in seven categories and picked up the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for Tilda Swinton. A law firm brings in its 'fixer' to remedy the situation after a lawyer has a breakdown while representing a chemical company that he knows is guilty in a multi-billion dollar class action suit. MICHAEL CLAYTON is one of the most sharply scripted films of 2007, with an engrossing premise and faultless acting. Director Tony Gilroy succeeds not only in capturing the audience's attention, but holding it until the credits roll. The Philadelphia Inquirer raved "The filmmaker, best known as the scribe of the Bourne trilogy, wears both director and writer hats here, and the results are electrifying." While the Washington Post proclaimed "This uncommonly intelligent thriller evokes the great films of the 1970s (All the President's Men, Klute, Three Days of the Condor) that managed to elicit gritty urban realism while maintaining a suave sense of style and moral complexity." MICHAEL CLAYTON is streaming on HBO, HBOMax, and DirectTv or available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu, DirectTV and others HERE. MICHAEL CLAYTON is a film that stands up to repeated viewings!
