Set in a seemingly idyllic suburban community, after a home invasion robbery ends in the death of beloved wife and mother, Rose, her twin sister (Julianne Moore) moves in to help widowed Gardner (Matt Damon) and the kids cope with their great loss. However, when a company agent pays the family a visit to sign off on their life insurance claim, it becomes quickly apparent all might not be as it seems, Gardner must quickly learn to navigate the town’s dark underbelly if he’s to make it out alive. Directed by George Clooney from an all-star script by Clooney himself alongside long-term collaborator Grant Heslov and the Coen Brothers, Suburbicon is a dark comedy that hopes to hit the heights of the likes of A Serious Man. Suburbicon hits theatres in the US on October 27th, and in the UK on November 24th.
