[Played July 23 as part of AARP'S Movies for Grownups and available on various VOD platforms.] After three people (Irina Björklund, Lars Hjelm, and Björn Granath) are murdered in Sweden in Anton Corbijn's intense, riveting, well-written, surprising, 105-minute, 2010 film based on Martin Boothe's novel A Very Private Gentleman, a cautious, lonely American (George Clooney) with a target on his back poses as a photographer when he heads to Italy to accept his next assignment from his duplicitous boss (Johan Leysen) and ends up being befriended by a suspicious priest (Paolo Bonacelli) and a comely prostitute (Violante Placido) while meticulously crafting a compact rifle for a Belgian assassin (Thekla Reuten).
