Burn After Reading (27-Aug-2008)

Directors: Ethan Coen; Joel Coen

Writers: Ethan Coen; Joel Coen

Keywords: Dark Comedy, Espionage, Blackmail, Divorce, Washington DC

Frances McDormand schemes to sell CIA files to the Russians, while armed horndog George Clooney builds a sex machine, and clueless hyper gym dork Brad Pitt wants to be a good Samaritan, for a price. Darkly clever ensemble comedy that plays as if ordinary people have stumbled into a spy thriller.
