Mark Ruffalo stars as the tenacious attorney who uncovers the truth about a toxic chemical that’s being dumped in a small farming community by DuPont. His fight is long and frustrating, but not as long and frustrating as the film itself. Even though this is inspired by a true story, the narrative plays out in predictable beats without any surprises or even inspired dramatic moments. Ruffalo’s performance is dedicated, but the lackadaisical direction by Todd Haynes fails to ignite any genuine sympathy or even outrage. An interesting historical story, but the original New York Times Magazine article is probably just as informative and effective.
