The Company Men – New film about the economic crisis

Really enjoyed this film. The physics of collapse examined among the top tier, and the higher up you are, the greater the fall. Recommended.

The story centers on a year in the life of three men trying to survive a round of corporate downsizing at a major company – and how that affects them, their families, and their communities. Main character is living the American dream: great job, beautiful family, shiny Porsche in the garage. When corporate downsizing leaves him and co-workers and jobless, the three men are forced to re-define their lives as men, husbands, and fathers. Main character soon finds himself enduring enthusiastic life coaching, a job building houses for his brother-in-law 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.
