Syriana

Academy Award winning political thriller about the state of the oil industry in the hands of those personally involved in and affected by it.

Syriana: a geographical term referring to those Middle East hot spots that have proven volatile with regard to the security of the United States; a place in the Middle East where trouble is always breaking out.

Based on the best-selling book See No Evil: The True Story of a Ground Soldier in the CIA's War on Terrorism by Robert Baer, this timely political thriller takes a penetrating look at the efforts of the U.S. intelligence-gathering community in the Middle East, weaving together several storylines ranging from American foreign policy and the CIA's role in it to the oil industry and terrorism. Welcome to Syriana.

Starring George Clooney, Matt Damon, Christopher Plummer, Amanda Peet and Jeffrey Wright.

Winner of the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role (George Clooney)
