About Burn After Reading

Osbourne Cox (John Malkovich) has just been unceremoniously ousted from his job with the CIA. Settling into retirement with his memoirs in one hand and a drink in the other, he's oblivious that his wife Katie (Tilda Swinton) is off having an affair with federal marshal Harry Pfarrer (George Clooney). Meanwhile, Linda and Chad (Frances McDormand and Brad Pitt), employees of Hardbodies Fitness Center, come across a disk in one of their lockers containing Cox's unfinished memoirs. With Linda pining for extensive plastic surgery, and Chad up for anything that sounds like fun, the pair set about concocting a madcap blackmail plan, putting into motion a series of bizarre and hilarious encounters... Dark comedy from the notorious Coen Brothers, with Richard Jenkins and Elizabeth Marvel.
