Thriller starring Tommy Lee Jones and Charlize Theron. After being informed that his son, Mike (Jonathan Tucker), has gone missing after his return from a tour of duty in Iraq, Mike's father Hank (Jones) travels to his son's military base to see if he can make any sense of his disappearance. Hank soon becomes frustrated by the lack of interest shown in the case by the military and the police, and with the help of Detective Emily Sanders (Theron), takes matters into his own hands. The pair begin to piece together the events that led to Mike's disappearance, making some interesting discoveries in the process.
Thriller set in the murky world of corporate law. Michael Clayton (George Clooney) is an in-house 'fixer' at one of the largest corporate law firms in New York. A former criminal prosecutor, Clayton takes care of his employer's dirtiest work at the behest of the firm's co-founder Marty Bach (Sydney Pollack), to whom Clayton feels a deep loyalty. He arranges top-flight legal services and skirts through loopholes for their ethically questionable clients. Though burned out, disillusioned and hardly content with his job as a fixer, his messy private life has left him inextricably tied to the firm. Meanwhile, litigator Karen Crowder (Tilda Swinton) finds her entire company's future hinging on the outcome of a multi-billion dollar settlement overseen by Clayton's friend, star lawyer Arthur Edens (Tom Wilkinson). When Edens snaps and decides to blow the whistle on the questionable case, sabotaging the defence, Clayton finds himself in the centre of a conspiratorial maelstrom where he must decide between his loyalty and his conscience.
Three-year-old Sarah Peterson was the only witness to the brutal murder of her father, a CIA agent who was shot at point-blank range in a deserted schoolyard near his Virginia home. Thirty-five years later, that little girl has become a high-level agent for the Secret Service -- so tough and accomplished that she is tapped by the President for the plum job of head of security for Jack Montgomery, the Secretary of State.
When Sarah tapes the proceedings of a clandestine meeting involving her new boss and two businessmen with extensive -- and questionable -- ties to the Middle East, she accidentally uncovers their plot to kidnap the daughter of one of the world's wealthiest men. But why? The answer involves a plan to assassinate a Middle East despot, rogue agents, a $50 million ransom, and wrongdoing at the highest levels of government. It may also hold the key to the truth behind the death of Sarah's father.
Reluctantly, Sarah joins forces with the father of the kidnapped woman and finds herself in a dangerous game of high-stakes, high-tech espionage, and revenge where everyone is suspect and siding with the wrong player could prove fatal. Rock, Paper, Scissors will keep you on the edge of your seat until the last heart-pounding page.
