Story: Crime comedy directed and co-written by George Clooney, where the story is set in 1959 in Suburbicon, a peaceful, idyllic suburban community with affordable homes and manicured lawns, the perfect place to raise a family. The Lodge family is doing just that, but the tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality, as husband and father Gardner Lodge (Matt Damon) must navigate the town’s dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit, and violence. This is a tale of very flawed people making very bad choices.
