Fired CIA agent Osbourne Cox (John Malkovich) is writing his memoirs. His estranged wife, Katie (Tilda Swinton), secretly downloads the manuscript as ammunition for her divorce.

After gym employee Linda Litzke (Frances McDormand) finds the disc, she and her co-worker Chad Feldheimer (Brad Pitt) decide to sell the info to the highest bidder, assuming that the disc contains vital classified information. Enter Harry Pfarrer (George Clooney), the man assigned to recover the disc, who is also sleeping with Katie Cox, Ozzie’s wife. As Linda and Chad begin exploiting their find, events spiral out of everyone’s and anyone’s control, in a cascading series of darkly hilarious encounters. Rated R. 113 minutes.
