Angry movie for angry times: George Clooney defines latest directorial 'Suburbicon'

04 September 2017

It will be premiering Saturday night at the Festival. Suburbicon, Clooney's sixth directorial effort, was made from a script written by brothers Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, and the movie tackles American racism head-on.

"Like, checking IDs on the way into the nursery", Clooney added. He recently did an interview with USA Today about becoming a first-time father at age 56. "I've been asked that for nearly 20 years now and the answer is just no". "It used to be my barf but now it's the twins' barf".

Still, Damon admitted to THR that his work as an actor, and his residence in California, have "isolated" him from much of the country. When people of color move into the predominantly white community, the ensuing madness is blamed on them instead of on Gardner, who's directly responsible for the rising tension (and bodycount). She's doing so beautifully. I'm kind of walled off, like a lot of actors. "Sometimes you have to see the real stuff to make it really land", he said. Both he and Matt Damon, Suburbicon's star, see an exasperating string between the dim plot of the motion picture and current occasions - and particularly how it's fixing to the rough conflict between racial oppressors and counter-protestors in Charlottesville. "I last week screened it for my good friend Norman Lear. Oh, that sounds like fun", Clooney responded.

"It is an angry film". There's a lot of anger out there.

Clooney pointed out that the film's very dark tone reflects the anger he sees in the USA today. "The main idea of the film was to pick some fights and I always like picking fights". The film was inspired by an incident in 1957, when the arrival of a black family in the previously all-white enclave of Levittown, Pennsylvania, sparked weeks of protests outside the family's home.

Clooney reveals during the press conference that genesis of the movie's screenplay can be traced back to the time he was watching Trump delivering his speeches during the campaign period. It's a film about "our coming to terms constantly with the idea that we have never addressed our issues of race fully", focused through the eyes of a child as a sort of tale of hope for the next generation.
