The first images from The Company Men have come online in advance of the film’s premiere at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Directed by John Wells, the drama revolves around three company men attempt to survive a round of corporate downsizing while trying to fend off its effects on their families and their identities. The description from All Movie Guide [via Fandango] gets slightly more specific by saying that Ben Affleck stars as a businessman whose life is thrown into ruin when he’s affected by company layoffs and has to work at his brother-in-law’s (Kevin Costner) construction site. Tommy Lee Jones and Chris Cooper also star. For those who don’t know, John Wells was the co-creator of ER and The West Wing and took full control of the latter after Aaron Sorkin and Thomas Schlamme left at the end of the fourth season.
Check out the images after the jump. The 2010 Sundance Film Festival will run from January 21-31st.
