a little repetitive
It's the story of water mismanagement in the financially-strapped town of Flint, Michigan from the view of various women activists. Iza Banks (Queen Latifah), Melissa Mays (Marin Ireland), LeeAnne Walters (Betsy Brandt) are normal everyday women who find their families suffering and a scary lost of faith in their water supply.
This Lifetime movie tackles the real life scandal in the headlines. While I understand the use of these women as protagonists, they may not be the most compelling. Their stories are essentially the same giving the same tone. Time and time again, they face off against an uncaring powerful political force. It gets repetitive and the villains are all the same. A better POV comes from EPA whistle blower Miguel Del Toral who has a better progression arc in his story. Being Lifetime movie, they needed the mothers and women's point of view. It's a less dramatic plot and Miguel would be a more standard protagonist.
