The Company Menis one of those movies that flew in and out of the cinemas before I caught it, and I’m glad to see that it’s soon to be available on DVD and Blu-ray.
In Ben Affleck, Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper, Kevin Costner, Maria Bello and Craig T. Nelson it has some decent acting chops on board, and it is the first film directed by John Wells, who also had his directorial hands on two of the best US TV shows of the last 20 years – ER and The West Wing.
It’s a look at how the global financial crisis reaches in and changes not only the corporate existence of a group of men, but how it affects their families, and their reassessment of what really matters to them.
The Company Men – release date and price
The Company Men will be available to buy on 13 July, 2011. The DVD version will have an RRP of $34.95, while on Blu-ray it will be $39.95 RRP.
