The Company Men movie review - The film studies the effects of corporate downsizing on families and communities. Ben Affleck plays a white-collar corporate employee who, after losing his six-figure salary, is offered a job installing drywall from his blue-collar working brother-in-law, played by Kevin Costner.Filming for the production began in April 2009 and completed in June of the same year in Boston. Partial filming for the production occurred in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston and also in the Boston suburbs of Wellesley and Framingham.Additional Notes: Bobby Walker (Ben Affleck) is living the American dream: great job, beautiful family, shiny Porsche in the garage. When corporate downsizing leaves him and co-workers Phil Woodward (Chris Cooper) and Gene McClary (Tommy Lee Jones) jobless, the three men are forced to re-define their lives as men, husbands, and fathers.
Bobby soon finds himself enduring enthusiastic life coaching, a job building houses for his brother-in-law (Kevin Costner) which does not play to his executive skill set, and perhaps the realization that there is more to life than chasing the bigger, better deal.
Cast:Ben Affleck, Kevin Costner, Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper
