Ben Affleck plays a family man who loses his lucrative job - and the outsize lifestyle that came with it - in 'The Company Men.' Director John Wells shows the plights of Affleck and two other downsized corporate executives (Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper) struggling with loss of employment and identity in the recession.

In the exclusive clip below, Jones stands up against the company's CEO (Craig T. Nelson) who has just single-handedly gutted a division. When the two men are unable to agree upon cost-cutting strategies, Jones gestures to the wall and offers a suggestion: "Sell the Degas."

'The Company Men' opens Friday.
