Johnny Depp leads an outstanding cast to bring focus on a serious matter
15 February 2021 | by clarknikkijaneSee all my reviews

Johnny Depp brings the reality of life n ramifications to everyday people without a voice, to speak out n be heard towards corporation cover ups in a way that this makes this film and its subject a must watch. One of the best films I've watched in a long time
