Watched Dark Waters (2019)

This sits in a similar groove to Steven Soderbergh’s film from 2000 Erin Brockovich. In this case big business poisons the population and a stoic lawyer tries to hold them to account. Everything about it is well done, a worthy telling of the story that should be of interest to everyone. It lacks the vibrance of Julia Roberts portrayal of Brockovich. Mark Ruffalo is more reserved as Robert Bilott, the lawyer at the centre of the story. His grim determination shows in the tight shoulders, and fixed expectation. It ticks the boxes for awards season, true life story, David versus Goliath, but might be a little dower to make a dent. Still worth seeing though.
