Trivia

Many of the scenes were shot in the Natural History Building on the University of Illinois campus. The building was available as it had recently been deemed structurally unsound (and would later undergo an eighty-three million dollar renovation). The metal pillars in the hallways were actual support beams. The lab in which Kunal Nayyar and Anthony Edwards worked, was an evacuated honors class lab for Integrative Biology students. See more »

Worthwhile entertainment and may learn something about the public concern about GMOs
19 April 2016 | by iskoggardSee all my reviews

An overly dramatic but well-produced and well-acted thriller that lumps together in one narrative all the concerns, mostly legitimate, that many consumers have about GMOs. It is no wonder that a powerful, paternalistic industry that cloaks itself in secrecy would give rise to such paranoiac visions of our food system. The film touches all the emotional buttons involving the struggle of the powerless individual citizen against the all powerful mega-corporation: the single mother of a sick child, a poor organic farmer, the young idealistic immigrant post-doc; their stories interwoven along with bad guys to boot: the nasty corporate general counsel and GMO cops. While the movie is highly entertaining, I would recommend also seeing the documentaries "Genetic Roulette" and "GMO OMG," which are more informative about the issues. Nevertheless this is a good starting point for those not familiar with GMOs and trying to understand why so many people are against them. It does give an insight into the passions behind the anti-GMO movement, which is not going to go away anytime soon.
