George Clooney peels back that
veneer of the perfect home life

 

In the decade following the Second World War, America’s emerging middle class was moving to the suburbs: idyllic, affordable homes in planned communities. For many, the American Dream of owning a home was becoming a reality for the first time. “The GI Bill helped everybody coming back from the war to buy a nice house with a garage and a yard. You could get a good job, live in a nice neighborhood and start a family, as long as you were white. What’s fun is peeling back that veneer of the perfect home life, and seeing how ugly things can get.” – George Clooney

Suburbicon is directed by George Clooney and written by Joel & Ethan Coen (No Country For Old Men), Clooney himself and Grant Heslov (Argo). The film stars Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting), Julianne Moore (Still Alice), recipient of the Franca Sozzani Award, eleven year-old Noah Jupe (The Night Manager and upcoming Wonder) and Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Force Awakens). Suburbicon is a picture-perfect 1950s suburb where the best and worst of humanity is reflected through the deeds of ordinarypeople. But when a home break-in turns deadly, a family must turn to blackmail, revenge, and betrayal in order to survive. Shot entirely in Southern California, on location in Los Angeles County and Orange County, Paramount Pictures will theatrically release Suburbicon in the USA on October 27, 2017.
