Inspired by a shocking true story, Dark Waters follows tenacious attorney Robert Billott (Mark Ruffalo) as he risks his career and family to uncover a dark secret that connects a growing number of unexplained deaths in West Virginia to one of the world's largest chemical manufacturers, DuPont.
The story of Billott’s 15-year fight to punish DuPont for dumping toxic waste, and expose the destruction wrought by a corporation that put corporate greed and profit above the health of a community, is told with precision and urgency by director Todd Haynes (Carol). Dark Waters is a timely, powerful and utterly compelling drama that bristles with righteous anger.
