America’s current financial situation isn’t looking too promising. Jobs are down, costs are up and there’s no money to go around. These days, everybody wants to stick it to The Man.

“Duplicity” brags a very talented cast, starring Julia Roberts, Clive Owen, Tom Wilkinson and the great Paul Giamatti. Roberts and Owen portray ex-American/ex-British government spies who now work for rivaling mega business franchises, owned by Wilkinson and Giamatti. However, the cutthroat companies don’t know that Roberts and Owen are secretly partners, trying to take the companies for $40 millon by working both sides (this is where the title gets its name).
