Movies:

Dark Waters, Official Trailer (video, left), Focus Features

CS Review: Not a great film, but a great, important story behind the film that is worth seeing. Suffers from a confused structure and slow, plodding development and loose editing – but the cast and performances are solid with an outstanding performance by the actor playing the farmer/rancher who is the original petitioner of the case against Dupont.
