Five years after their first encounter, corporate spies Ray Koval (Clive Owen) and Claire Stenwick (Julia Roberts) meet again. This time around, they plot to steal a formula that will make millions.
Although they had good chemistry in Duplicity, I believe that Owen and Roberts have better (and more believable) chemistry in Closer. Tony Gilroy, who's better known for his directorial debut Michael Clayton, gives us a light caper that provides entertainment but not much else. Duplicity is worth at least a look.
My Rating: ****
