Never trust anyone, ever. George Clooney learns this lesson the hard way in his latest film, The American directed by Anton Corbijn.
Jack (played by George Clooney) is an assassin who carries out every job he is given with precision and dedication and never lets himself get to close to someone. However, when a job in Sweden takes a turn for the worse, Jack must go in to hiding. He is assign to Castelvecchio, a small town in Italy by his associate Pavel (played by Johan Leysen). Soon after arriving, Jack befriends the local priest, Father Benedetto (played by Paolo Bonacelli) and the two begin to form a very apprehensive relationship. More after the break.
