Drama
Like Up In the Air, John Wells' film aims to dramatize the destructive effects of the late-aughts recession on the American soul. That soul is represented here by Ben Affleck, Chris Cooper and Tommy Lee Jones, three generations of men who've become ludicrously wealthy as executives at a ship-building company. When the global economy sinks, though, their careers go down with it, leaving the men emasculated and, by their lofty standards, financially strapped. Affleck's response is defiant denial, while Cooper spirals into depression and Jones is paralyzed by his own conscience. Affleck's character is the least interesting but gets the most screen time, and Wells strains too hard to wedge his oversimplified critique of capitalism and last-minute dose of uplifting redemption into the same movie. –Matt Semansky
