In the late 1990s, a new partner in a prestigious law firm decides to help the farmer friend of his grandma discover why his cows are dying. Turns out that Dupont Chemicals have been illegally dumping toxic waste byproduct into a local WV stream, affecting an entire town. Based on a NYTimes Magazine story “The Lawyer Who Became Dupont’s Worst Nightmare”, Mark Ruffalo stars in this gripping thriller about a corporate defense lawyer who ends up helping the underdog, tirelessly defending a wronged community and over two decades holding industry accountable for knowingly poisoning every living thing on Earth. One person can indeed make a difference. Tim Robbins and Anne Hathaway co-star in this power film from director Todd Haynes (Safe, Carol).
