Check out the official plot synopsis of Suburbicon, the upcoming drama movie directed by George Clooney based on a script he co-wrote with Joel & Ethan Coen, and Grant Heslov and starring Matt Damon, Julianne Moore, Josh Brolin, Woody Harrelson, and Oscar Isaac:
“Welcome to sunny Suburbicon! A suburban community of smiling young families nestled in the heart of Middle America. With its affordable homes and manicured lawns, this is 1957’s postcard answer to the American dream.
Despite being pillars of the Suburbicon Community, the Lodge family’s lives are turned upside down when a home invasion gone wrong is responsible for the shocking death of little Nicky Lodge’s mother. An unlikely and highly suspicious series of events consumes the Lodge household as the family descends deeper into a web of betrayal, adultery and blackmail. Following his mother’s death, young Nicky attempts to make sense of the strange and selfish machinations of the adults that surround him. This curiosity threatens his father’s attempts at a new family order.
All the while, the chaos unraveling inside the Lodge family home goes unnoticed as the town works itself into a riotous mob in response to the first black family moving into the home right next door…”
Life was simpler back then, but it doesn’t mean it was better…
