The trailer mostly captures the life of an unemployed husband, including his ups and downs as he tries to find a new job.
"The Company Men" which has Oscar-winning actors, Ben Affleck, Chris Cooper, Kevin Costner and Tommy Lee Jones, among the cast ensemble has been previewed in a full-length trailer. The video mostly gives its highlight to Affleck's Bobby Walker, but still includes some scenes featuring his co-workers, Cooper's Phil Woodward and Jones' Gene McClary.
Living the American dream, three white-collar employees are forced to re-define their lives as men, husbands and fathers following corporate downsizing. Taking a job of building houses for his brother-in-law (Costner) and joining life coaching, Walker learns what it takes to be a true winner while realizing that there is more to life than chasing the bigger, better deal.
Directed and scripted by John Wells, "The Company Men" introduces us to the new realities of American life. This drama has been debuted at this year's Sundance Film Festival and will get limited U.S. release on October 22.
