A Civil Action
1999
***½
Director: Steven Zaillian
Cast: John Travolta, Robert Duvall, William H. Macy, Tony Shalhoub, Zeljko Ivanek, Bruce Norris

An Erin Brockovich-like true story of a class action suit which was filed against two corporations accused of polluting the local water supply in Woburn, Massachusetts. This refreshing court drama doesn’t unfold as neatly as one might expect. A fine ensemble cast. Based on Jonathan Harr’s non-fiction book.
