This just in: Your favorite Academy Award winner, a certain Mr. George Clooney (you may be familiar with some of his previous work), stars as a super sexy assassin, Jack, in The American. When a top-secret job in Sweden ends, let's say, more harshly than expected, Jack retreats to the Italian countryside. He relishes being away from his career of danger as he holes up in a small medieval town. While living la bella vita, Jack takes an assignment to construct a weapon for a mysterious contact and then pursues a torrid liaison with a very beautiful woman, Clara (Violante Placido). Jack and Clara's time together eventually evolves into a romance (she's only human) . . . but by stepping out of the shadows and into love, Jack may be tempting fate . . . look out, George!

You can spend two hours with Jack in the theater, and you can check out the video below right now.
