Mark Ruffalo stars in Dark Waters, that – having being overlooked in this year’s awards – is heading to DVD in July.
A film that slipped under many people’s radars, both at the box office and in terms of awards attention, is the quietly impressive Dark Waters. The movie stars Mark Ruffalo, charting the story of a lawyer taking on a seemingly-unwinnable court case, where social justice and pollution are potential collateral damage as the legal process takes hold.
Directed by Todd Haynes, the film did win critical acclaim, but struggled to find much of an audience. However, perhaps the disc release will do something about that. It’s been confirmed that the DVD is set for release in the UK on July 6th 2020. It’s just a DVD, there’s no Blu-ray for this one. But there are a few extra features, and here’s the list of the, lovingly cut and pasted from the press release…
- The Cost Of Being A Hero – This piece examines real-life Rob Bilott’s sacrifices to take down a powerful corporation and how a single individual can impact an entire community. Cast and filmmakers discuss the importance of telling this story and empowering whistle-blowers.
- Uncovering DARK WATERS – Get an inside look into the storytelling behind the gritty, real-life story of DARK WATERS from Mark Ruffalo, Anne Hathaway, filmmakers, and crew.
- The Real People – Meet the real people from Parkersburg who were impacted first-hand by the contaminated water as they share their experiences being on set and taking part in the film.
The DVD is up for preorder now, and you can find it here.
