IMDbRotten Tomatoes

Mark Ruffalo plays the lawyer who took on the Dupont chemical company in Todd Haynes's ominously gripping fight-the-power corporate exposé. The film is based on the 2016 New York Times Magazine story “The Lawyer Who Became Dupont’s Worst Nightmare,” and the person it’s about was, in fact, a corporate defense attorney — a man whose chief clients were chemical companies.

In 1998, Robert Bilott (Ruffalo) receives an unannounced visit at his office from a hardscrabble Appalachian farmer from Parkesburg, West Virginia. Robert sees by the graphic evidence Wilbur has gathered that his cows have been poisoned by the water in Dry Run Creek, which Dupont has used as a waste dump. Robert, agrees to represent Wilbur, which means that his law firm is now going to sue Dupont, one of the firm’s key clients. The film is splendidly shot, and the acting is from Mark Ruffalo and Anne Hathaway (brilliant as Robert’s wife) is superb.–Variety
“Ruffalo’s tenacious performance makes for a compelling character.” National Post
