The Company is "a completely new kind of film" raves Anna Kisselgoff of The New York Times, a fascinating look at the world of dance, with the cooperation of the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago. Legendary director and Oscar® nominee Robert Altman (2001 Best Director, Best Picture, Gosford Park; 1975 Best Director, Best Picture, Nashville), takes us into the world of the dancers whose professional and personal lives clash as they cope with the demands of a life in the ballet. Neve Campbell (Scream, TV's "Party of Five") plays a gifted but conflicted company member on the verge of becoming a principal dancer at a fictional Chicago troupe. Golden Globe® winner James Franco (Spider-Man, TV's "James Dean") co-stars as Campbell's boyfriend, a master chef who provides romance and refuge from the watchful eye of the pompous artistic director played by Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange).
A man gets a profitable idea, he puts it in motion and it picks up speed. Other men join in and a Company is born. It employs people, conducts business and makes profits. Sometimes, it gets to be so good at its business that it becomes bigger than the men who formed it, bigger than the business itself -- so big, that it starts threatening its own existence. This is a story of one such company whose business is crime. A company you can join anytime, but never leave. A company that knows no borders and recognizes no taxes. A place where countries are used as offices and distances as protection, and where managers are trained to use the most effective management technique ever, fear. Where switching jobs can mean switching worlds. Where the only rule is profit, and the only enemy is the man who breaks it.Welcome to the company that will make the corporate world look like a bunch of innocent kids playing cricket on a Sunday. Company is the touching and intimidating saga of the rise and fall of a criminal empire, and the lives of the men and women who ran it.

Set in modern upper-crust Manhattan, Company is a funny, sophisticated exploration of love and commitment as seen through the eyes of a charming perpetual bachelor questioning his single state and his enthusiastically married, slightly envious friends. With a wise and witty Stephen Sondheim score including "Another Hundred People," "Side by Side by Side," "The Ladies Who Lunch" and "Being Alive," Company offers musical comedy at its finest.
