From director Steven Soderbergh and based on a true story, The Informant! stars Matt Damon as Mark Whitacre, an executive turned FBI informant who had somewhat of a hand in exposing price fixing within his own agricultural company that would shock many and cost the companies involved more than $1 billion. Whitacre is anything but a savvy, subtle, secret source. One thing he is, is a bit puzzling – even forcing his FBI handlers to question why Whitacre decided to all but hand over his corrupt colleagues.
Frank Goode (Robert De Niro) is a widowed father of three, who finds his hopes to reconnect with his children during a family reunion let down when daughters, Amy (Kate Beckinsale) and Rosie (Drew Barrymore) and son Robert (Sam Rockwell) each cancel their visit. With none of his children coming home, Frank decides he’ll come to them. One by one, Frank finds out that while everything might not have been what he thought it was, it’s still, that’s right – just fine.
In this thriller, Cameron Diaz and James Marsden are an unsuspecting married couple who, seemingly out of nowhere, find a small box outside their door. The box holds within it, the opportunity for instant wealth. With the press of the box’s big red button, the two could be in possession of $1 million – something that almost instantly intrigues its rather discontent recipients. But there’s a catch. Press the button, receive the money – but someone will die.
