A home invasion rattles a quiet family town.
Drama - This is a very dark and violent 1950s-set satire that touches on the
conservative values and racism of the time. Fans of Matt Damon and
Julianne Moore will enjoy though the real lead is perhaps young
newcomer Noah Jupe. Oscar Isaac has a showy supporting role but
limited screen time. Language, sexual content, brutal and bloody
violence, and adult themes make the film not for kids.

Roger EbertFull Review Below Average This startling misfire is a tonal disaster from start to finish... Two stories compete for screen time but never really intertwine... "Suburbicon” doesn't so much tell two stories that never coalesce into one—it doesn't tell any interesting story at all.
USA TodayFull Review Average ...a disappointing black comedy that tries to do way, way too much. In the grand scheme of Coen brothers' scripts with nimwits making hugely bad decisions, Fargo exists on one brilliant end while Suburbicon lands with a hearty thud somewhere on the other side.
NY PostFull Review Average ..."Suburbicon” is a surprisingly tone-deaf combination of two wildly different stories that simply don't work in concert. What's most cringe-inducing is the way the film relegates its all-too-topical racism plotline, drawn from a real 1950s incident in Pennsylvania, to the background.
Rolling StoneFull Review Above Average Where the film goes wrong is its grafting on a subplot about racism that, however admirable, gives the film a hectoring tone that wreaks havoc with its blistering comic thrust. Clooney is too talented and committed a filmmaker not to get in his licks. But with Suburbicon, he's made a movie that is tonally at war with itself.
