This political thriller weaves multiple storylines to highlight the consequences of pursuing wealth and power. A CIA agent (George Clooney in an Oscar-winning role) is sent to assassinate an Arabic prince but the mission goes horribly wrong.

Matt Damon stars as an energy analyst whose son dies while he is a guest of the prince. Contains strong violence and language.
