Dark Waters

"Mark Ruffalo, a great actor of seemingly limitless range, brings a growing sense of moral outrage to this gripping Todd Haynes docudrama about a corporate lawyer who risks it all to take on the chemical companies he's been hired to defend." - Rolling Stone

"Todd Haynes, the director that brought us Carol, Far from Heaven and Velvet Goldmine, opts for a good old-fashioned corporate thriller with Dark Waters based on the 2016 New York Times article 'The Lawyer Who Became DuPont’s Worst Nightmare' by Nathaniel Rich.

"The film stars the always dependable Mark Ruffalo as real-life environmental lawyer Rob Bilott who went from defending large corporations to suing one of the biggest – Dupont – for exposing people and animals to toxic chemicals. With a first-rate supporting cast that features Anne Hathaway as Rob’s wife, Sarah, Tim Robbins as supportive boss Tom and Bill Camp as the West Virginia farmer seeking answers after losing 190 head of cattle.

"Haynes does a terrific job of keeping the audience riveted. The film benefits by stating the facts without convoluting the story with a bunch of technical jargon. Terms like PFOA and the more familiar Teflon come into play, but the film remains concise as a straightforward investigative thriller.

"If something needs to be investigated Ruffalo is our man. The actor has done that several times in films that include Spotlight, Shutter Island, Zodiac  and, of course, as David Banner/The Hulk in The Avengers films. He’s become this generation’s Jimmy Stewart as an actor that represents the trustworthy down-to-earth everyman. Ruffalo’s performance is once again on the money.

"The holidays are a great time to get together with family and friends to watch a good investigative thriller. Dark Waters is compelling and effective as it uncovers the deception by one of America’s biggest chemical corporations. FYI, you may want to throw out some of your skillets." - Houston Chronicle
