A Family Man

2017 At the movies July 2017 Suzanne A. Marshall

By Suzanne A. Marshall from the July 2017 Edition

Starring: Allison Brie, Gerard Butler, Willem Dafoe, Alfred Molina

Director: Bill Dubuque

“A Head-hunter whose life revolves around closing the ‘deals’  in a survival-of-the-fittest boiler room, battles his top rival for control  of  their  job  placement  company his  dream  of  owning the company clashing with the needs of his family.”

This movie is billed as a drama. I had no idea the world of head-hunters could be so ‘smarmy’. Or, perhaps that is the brutal environment the director has chosen to portray in order to create such a huge conflict between the protagonists working personality and the man who returns home to the family nest.

Personally, I found some of his tactics hard to swallow and would really like to believe that there is more integrity out there than this movie offers. That said, the actors are good and the movie is well produced.

The IMDB rating is 6.4/10 based on 860 viewers.
