Summary
"Attorney Michael Clayton is a 'fixer,' the go-to guy when his powerful New York law firm wants a mess swept under the rug. But now he's handed a crisis even he may not be able to fix. The firm's top litigator in a $3-billion case has gone from advocate to whistleblower. And the more Michael tries to undo the damage, the more he's up against forces that put corporate survival over human life--including Michael's."--Container notes
Awards note
Academy Awards, 2008: Best performance by an actress in a supporting role (Swinton).
