Movie Pick of the Day: Dark Waters
A scary drama, not because of any ghosts or paranormal activity, but because it depicts a true story. The plot centers on a corporate defense attorney, Rob Bilott (Mark Ruffalo) who takes on a big chemical company in a lawsuit to expose them for their environmental hazards.
The company in question is DuPont. In the movie DuPont is exposed for producing mass destruction to the health of animals and humans. The film displays some vividly startling scenes where you see the chaos this company does to people’s lives.
This is an important film that documents the real dangers that affect our daily lives, yet in many cases we aren’t even aware of. The performance from Ruffalo was rock solid, as usual. The supporting cast includes Anne Hathaway, Tim Robbins and Bill Pullman. Very good cast.
Dark Waters is an important film. It’s educational and eye-opening. It might not be the most exciting plot, but it’s a significant story. This is a deep look at how big business gets away with crimes. Worthy watch.
