True-to-life story of people fighting Big Money
It was a good job. I've been in those deposition rooms. I've faced those lawyers--well, not exactly those lawyers, but ones exactly like the tobacco company attorneys portrayed here. Ms. Lahti's reactions feel right, and the kinds of tactics she faces in this film are used against anyone who dares to expose a Big Corporation. They fight dirty. They play all their cards, but not until they're ready, if they can help it. They spend lots of money, wear their opponents down, employ private detectives to investigate the past of their "enemies." This movie tells the truth about how Big Money operates, and about what they do to those who expose them. There's no way to spoil the end of this film. It isn't over yet.
