Consummate con man Roy Courtnay has set his sights on his latest mark: the recently widowed Betty McLeish, worth millions. But this time, what should have been a simple swindle escalates into a cat-and-mouse game with the ultimate stakes.
Dark Waters (2019) was directed by Todd Haynes. It stars Mark Ruffalo as Robert Bilott, a corporate lawyer, and Anne Hathaway as his wife, Sarah Bilott
The movie, "based on a true story," is powerful, but somewhat formulaic. Lawyer's job is defending corporations, he learns of serious corporate evil, and he takes on the job of defending the little people harmed by the corporation.
However, even though you can predict what will happen, you will still be frightened by the terrifying power of a giant corporation.
Naturally, Ruffalo and Hathaway are great. It's wonderful to watch them act, and even better to watch them act opposite each other.
We saw this film at Rochester's great Little Theatre. It will work almost as well on the small screen.
