An involving and inspirational tale, highlighted by a Christopher Walken performance
Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
Academy Award® Winner Christopher Walken, Zach Braff and Christina Ricci star in the true story of a small-town farmer taking on one of the largest agricultural and food manufacturing corporations.
Percy Schmeiser (Walken), a third-generation farmer, is sued by a corporate giant for allegedly using their patented seeds.
With little resources to fight the giant legal battle, Percy joins forces with up-and-coming attorney Jackson Weaver (Braff) and environmental activist Rebecca Salcau (Ricci) to fight one of the most monumental cases all the way up to the Supreme Court. (Rotten Tomatoes)
The outstanding cast, handsome visuals, and unimpeachable little guy-against-the-system dramatics carry the film.
