8/10
Highly recommended to those who like Coen Brothers movies

If you liked the Coen Brothers movie Fargo, I believe you will like this movie.

It's a movie that focuses primarily on the Lodge family who live in a planned community called Suburbicon where the residents are nearly 100% Caucasian, and want it to stay that way.

Matt Damon is Gardner Lodge and Julianne Moore plays two parts, his wife Rose and her sister Margaret. Noah Jupe is Gardner's and Rose's son Nicky (about 10 years old). A home invasion at the Lodge house leads to events that are the center of the plot that unfolds in the movie. A subplot concerns a black family that moves into the house behind the Lodge house. The subplot is not explored in any depth. The racism in our country was more overt back in the 1950s time frame of the movie.

Matt Damon and Noah Jupe do truly outstanding jobs in this movie, and Julianne Moore and the supporting cast, including Oscar Isaac, are also very good.

Don't go to this movie if you are not a fan of Coen Brothers' movies.
