Burn After Reading

Burn After Reading

Burn After Reading – This is another Coen brothers movie, however this one is a little different. Basically, two gym employees find a computer disc of the CIA employee Osbourne Cox. The disc falls out of his bag in the locker room, and the two gym employees – Chad (Brad Pitt) and Linda (Frances McDormand) try to blackmail Cox when they find out what the disc is. At the same time, Linda finds Harry (George Clooney) on one of the dating sites who also has an affair with Katie. Katie just turns out to be Osbourne’s wife, who plans to leave Osbourne for Harry. That’s where the movie takes place as she tries to figure out Osbourne’s financial situation preparing for the divorce.

With so many talented actors, you would expect the movie to be perfect, but you know how Coen brothers movies are. Some people really love it some really hate it. This one is no exception. I thought that the movie was pretty funny and had a few really really good parts. The actors were brilliant and performed to their best as well. No matter how much your kids like Brad Pitt, it is reated “R” for a reason. 🙂 I think this one is definetely worth watching.

Here is a trailer, kind of goes over a story in short:


Here are the actors that play in the movie:

Brad Pitt, George Clooney, John Malkovich, Frances McDormand and Tilda Swinton.

We would recommend watching the movie, but depending on your taste, you may think that it is the worst movie ever. I think it depends on how much you like the “R” part of it. 🙂
