Beautiful story by Dave Eggers of a very real issue many Americans are facing right now.
Gus Van Sant again directs a wonderful cast and the cinematography is gorgeous. Matt Damon, Frances McDormand and John Krasinski provide honest, moving performances as well as Hal Holbrook and Rosemarie DeWitt in supporting roles.

This is a sweet and sensitive film about a very important topic. Great cast and a very special performance by Hal Holbrook. So nice to an intelligent, beautiful film that doesn't need violence or special effects to keep your attention!

All you need to know is that Abu Dhabi paid for this propaganda, Damon is a scummy mouthpiece for corporate Arabia. I prefer to see my $ go to hard working Americans trying to support their families but idiot traitor Damon wants to see it get funneled to Al Quaida so they can murder us which I guess he believes we deserve.
I didn't see the movie but I think the only roles that come naturally to Damon are the homosexual ones that he seems to gravitate to.

i thought it was quite boring and was disappointed in Matt Damon's performance. Used to seeing him in rather exciting movies, like the Bourne Series, where the plot and action carry you along.
In this movie he seemed to be sort of short and overweight, with a paunch, and certainly not handsome. Also did not project any real personality.
The movie really just confirms America's opinion of Big Business as totally corrupt and immoral. They would do anything to make more millions.
Very lack luster movie.
