La commedia nera, ambientata negli anni ’50, avrà come protagonisti Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Josh Brolin e Oscar Isaac.
Suburbicon is 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. 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.
Clooney ha dichiarato che i Coen gli avevano proposto di recitare nel film sin dal 2001: “This was a film they kept trying to get made for quite a few years. I was offered to play the role that Oscar is playing back in 2001. There are some similar themes to ‘Fargo‘ and ‘Burn After Reading.’ Hapless characters making really bad decisions. The original script took place in the 1980s and didn’t have the Mayer family as neighbors so it was more of a comedy-thriller. We thought we’d like to make something a little less funny and a lot angrier. It seems like a good time for a film that feels angry.”
Il film uscirà negli Stati Uniti il 27 ottobre.
