Michael Clayton

This is the best lawyer movie since The Verdict with Paul Neuman.  The story has George Clooney as Michael Clayton.  His law firm has been defending U-North a Monsanto like firm in a class action law suit over their cancer causing herbicide.  Tilda Swinton won Best Supporting Actress playing the antagonist, U-North’s general counsel.  Sydney Pollack in one of his last roles is good.  At the end with the credits rolling, close up of Clooney in the back of a taxi.  The driver asks what are we doing?  He says to just give him $50 worth.  After a bit, a smile appears on his face.
