An excellent movie. Too bad it was not promoted more when it came out. These true stories against large Corporations often do not get the attention they deserve. A very informative movie.

Excellent. Dupont was killing its workers deforming their children and the citizens sick drinking the polluted water. EPA and DuPont were in bed together. I had eaten out of Teflon frying pans for years, but no longer. Doubt if they still on the market. We have sacrificed convenience for health. Cancer was not as common when our grandparents were alive. Now it's also an epidemic like Covid-19.

A must see! People really need to be educated on issues like this. There is glyphosate (roun-up) in so much of the food we eat, mercury and aluminum in our vaccines, fluoride and other harmful agents in our drinking water. It adds up, and leaves us with autism, dementia, cancer, and other mental and physical disorders. I really hope more people start learning and making changes.

This is a really well made film, striking the right balance between presenting true events and creating a movie that captivates and entertains. Fortunately no Hollywood over-sentimental romanticism involved which can take away from the main themes of a plot. The film tackles the really important subject matter with respect to the main protagonist and victims, and performances from the excellent cast are well researched and delivered.

Very interesting and troubling story. Confirms my thoughts that we are all going to die from cancer. There are just too many poisons we are exposed to in our civilized world.

Good cast, good writing and a very well told, TRUE story about an environmental issue we all should know about.
These kinds of stories should be taught in all schools, not just law schools. Highly recommended.

Such a great based-on-true-events movie. Mark Ruffalo is fantastic in this movie. If you haven't yet, check out "The Devil We Know"; the documentary film that inspired this movie.

This movie is well acted and directed, the performances are moving and intense. We follow the story of how an environmental attorney takes on the big chemical companies in order to protect the rights of people. This movie is relevant to everyone and should make us all want to know more about the products that we use everyday.

A eye opening story about how one person's tenacity makes a difference for the rest of the world. Another forever chemical that builds up in our bodies and is so very toxic to us and most mammals. Much like lead in gasoline and mecury in tuna. Well worth the time.

Oh, how we'd like to believe that good important films, especially those which deal with true stories and make a great statement are the ones Hollywood would never miss to praise.
Not so with this one. This one hits too hard for Hollywood so it was ignored. If it were not for its brave producer, the film would never have been made.
Watch it and enjoy the excellent film making, performances, and a great and true story about a real-life hero- not some marvel comics low-brow junk.
