Dark Waters Cast and Crew | Focus Features

From Participant (Spotlight, Green Book), DARK WATERS tells the shocking and heroic story of an attorney (Mark Ruffalo) who risks his career and family to uncover a dark secret hidden by one of the world’s largest corporations and to bring justice to a community dangerously exposed for decades to deadly chemicals.

Corporate environmental defense attorney Rob Bilott (Academy Award®-nominee Mark Ruffalo) has just made partner at his prestigious Cincinnati law firm in large part due to his work defending Big Chem companies. He finds himself conflicted after he’s contacted by two West Virginia farmers who believe that the local DuPont plant is dumping toxic waste in the area landfill that is destroying their fields and killing their cattle. Hoping to learn the truth about just what is happening, Bilott, with help from his supervising partner in the firm, Tom Terp (Academy Award®-winner Tim Robbins), files a complaint that marks the beginning of an epic 15-year fight—one that will not only test his relationship with his wife, Sarah (Academy Award®-winner Anne Hathaway) but also his reputation, his health and his livelihood.

“One person standing up can make a huge difference. And what we see when a community comes together...we can change things.” - Rob Bilott⠀Today, @MarkRuffalo, Rob Bilott, leaders from @environmentalworkinggroup and @NRDC_org and community organizers from across the country gathered in our nation’s capital to demand stronger protections against the dangers of #foreverchemicals (PFAS). For too long, corporations have polluted our communities causing massive impacts on public health. These chemicals are in our food, our drinking water, our clothing, and more. We deserve better- and change starts with all of us. See @DarkWatersMovie, and take action at the link in bio. #darkwaters
