My Advice: Matinee

What are you when you’re less than nobody? Whatever that is, it’s Wesley Gibson (McAvoy). He works a cubicle job, has a girlfriend who’s being bent over by his best friend anytime Wesley’s out of eyeshot, is constantly browbeaten by his supervisor, and has to take anti-anxiety medication because he’s just a complete and utter waste of flesh. Then one day he gets contacted by a mysterious woman named Fox (Jolie) who tells him the truth: the father that he never knew? Was one of the greatest assassins of the modern age.
