Background: POISONED TRUTH (OT: DARK WATERS) tells the true story of lawyer Rob Bilott, who single-handedly took on one of the world's largest chemical companies and brought the so-called Teflon scandal to light. Successful director Todd Haynes (CAROL, I’M NOT THERE) staged his self-sacrificing fight, for which Bilott had already been awarded the Alternative Nobel Prize in 2017, precisely and precisely as a gripping economic thriller in the tradition of films such as DIE VERLEGERIN and SPOTLIGHT. In addition to the grandiose performance of Mark Ruffalo (SPOTLIGHT, DIE UNFASSBAREN), among other things, Oscar winner Anne Hathaway (LES MISÉRABLES, THE DEVIL'S WEARING PRADA), Tim Robbins (THE CONVINED, SHORT CUTS) and Bill Pullman (VICE, INDEPENDENCE DAY).
