A Dark Truth...

"A Dark Truth" (Andy Garcia, Forest Whitaker, Kim Coates, Eva Longoria) is a surprisingly upbeat and meaningful action film by Damian Lee about activism, water rights, and corporate greed.  There are some poignant if unbelievable moments and dialogue in this film. As a reformed CIA field agent, Andy Garcia sets the film's tone by comparing privatizing water rights to slavery.

Despite the feel good nature of the film, it maintains cinematic tension right through to the end. I was surprised to find myself enjoying it.  Now playing on Netflix....Remember to thank Canada!
