Suburbicon is seemingly the American utopia of all communities in the 1950s. With perfectly manicured lawns, cheery neighbourhood greetings and idyllic people living idyllic lives, what could possibly go wrong?

This tranquil surface masks a disturbing reality when Gardner Lodge's wife is killed during a break-in. In the aftermath, Lodge tries to put his life back together with his sister-in law's help to navigate the community's dark underbelly of betrayal, deceit and violence. Soon enough, the police get involved in what appears to be a murderous plot and a suburban conspiracy begins to slowly unravel.

The comedic crime thriller Suburbicon is directed by Academy Award winner George Clooney and star Academy Award winners Julianne Moore, Matt Damon and Oscar Issacs.
