Unfortunately this is now cancelled / postponed for the lockdown


US: 2019; Director Todd Haynes. Cast: Mark Ruffalo; Tim Robbins

An environmental thriller which is also a true story, about corporate negligence by a large chemical company (DuPont) poisoned the water of a small town over decades. The film follows the efforts of a dogged lawyer who is persuaded by the evidence, but finds it difficult to prove that DuPont knew about their negligence due to the corruption surrounding it. The insidious confidence of such a large company has a chilling effect and a feeling of helplessness pervades in the face of corruption. It is a powerful and disturbing watch.
