This comedy-drama from director George Clooney features two parallel stories that seek to expose the dark underbelly of life in 1950s suburban America. In one tale, white businessman Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) tries to pull off an insurance scam with the help of his wife's identical twin sister (Julianne Moore). Meanwhile, a black family (Karimah Westbrook, Leith M. Burke, and Tony Espinosa) who recently moved in next door to the Lodges are forced to confront the virulent racism of their community. Oscar Isaac and Noah Jupe co-star. Written by Clooney, Grant Heslov, and Joel and Ethan Coen. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

|display_description||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. The tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge must navigate the town's dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence. This is a tale of very flawed people making very bad choices.|
