Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Noah Jupe and Oscar Issac star in Paramount Pictures’ 1950s-set crime dark comedy-drama, Suburbicon, directed by George Clooney from a screenplay co-written by the Coen Brothers.
Suburbicon, which has been selected to screen at both the VENICE FILM FESTIVAL and TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL in September, is the first film George Clooney has directed since 2014’s The Monuments Men, which many felt was a fall from his usual standard. With this new release, Clooney teams up with regular collaborators Matt Damon and Oscar Issac for another hilarious dark comedy (similar to Confessions of a Dangerous Mind or The Ladykillers).
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 husband and father Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) 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.
