Matt Damon


9 Dec, 2005

Damon plays Bryan Woodman in the drama, Syriana. After a U.S energy plant in the Middle East loses drilling rights to a Chinese competitor, the plant merges with a smaller company in Kazakhstan. Full of corruption and politics, the film parallels the stories of four men deeply involved in the oil industry: a CIA agent, a lawyer, an energy analyst, and an immigrant worker. Co-starring George Clooney, Amanda Peet, and Christopher Plummer.

It’s the kind of movie that you plan to go out and have a drink or cup of coffee afterwards and talk about it. That’s kind of the point.
