One corporate defence attorney took an environmental suit with the chemical company DuPont, who revealed a long history of pollution.
At Dark Waters, Mark Ruffalo is out for environmental justice. Don’t be confused with the 2005 horror film Dark Water, this film comes from Far From Heaven and director Carol Todd Haynes, and is inspired by real stories – especially, the New York Times article “Lawyers Who Become the Ugly DuPont Ugly Dream”.
Ruffalo acted as a corporate defence attorney – meaning he defended the chemical company for life – which ultimately brought environmental demands to the chemical company, which revealed a long history of deliberate pollution. Think of Erin Brockovich but men as well as in West Virginia – if you are a Ruffalo fan, maybe start hoping it brings the same success as Julia Roberts.
The three-time Oscar nominee, and the last-time nominee present for the same turn in Spotlight, Ruffalo seemed to know if we would have an Oscar in our brains. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, about the film, Ruffalo inserted a reference to his role which was originally nominated in The Kids Are All Right and Spotlight: “I feel that culture is like calling the film into existence,” he said. “Sometimes, movies can be descended from cultural events or situations of the heart or a willingness to deal with cultural issues.
Sometimes a film can come during its own cultural debate when the debate is most relative. I feel like The Kids Are All Right comes well in the midst of gay marriage debates and Spotlight talks about the Church’s illogical closure of widespread sexual abuse from pastors to some children when appropriate. These films do not appear suddenly but out of our need to talk about it. “
So, if you are an Academy voter who wants to give potential actors a fair-minded victory, Ruffalo can be your man. But he will have some tough competition: Joaquin Phoenix, Adam Driver, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler, and Antonio Banderas all upfront depending on who you ask, not to explain anything about the cast of Martin Scorsese, The Irishman. This group is rarely a cakewalk, but this year may be a very tight race. The planned Dark Waters launch is only limited to November 22, with a wider launch decided for November 22.
