DARK WATERS
2019, Focus Features, 126 min, USA, Dir: Todd Haynes

Corporate environmental defense attorney Rob Bilott (Mark Ruffalo) has just made partner at his prestigious Cincinnati law firm, in large part due to his work defending Big Chem companies. He finds himself conflicted after he’s contacted by two West Virginia farmers who believe that the local DuPont plant is dumping toxic waste in an area landfill that is destroying their fields and killing their cattle. Hoping to learn the truth about just what is happening, Bilott, with help from his supervising partner (Tim Robbins), files a complaint that marks the beginning of an epic 15-year fight - one that will not only test his relationship with his wife (Anne Hathaway), but also his reputation, his health and his livelihood. With Bill Pullman.
