Editorial Reviews

Pat Melancon (Laura Innes), a housewife, and Emelda West (Ruby Dee), an elderly woman, have complained for years about the health hazards posed by their town’s industrial plants. They learn that an international conglomerate plans to build another plant and they are outraged. A town meeting is called. At the meeting, plant executives deny health problems, emphasize new jobs, and receive the town’s support. The relentless women petition hundreds of organizations for help. Requests are denied. In an effort to fight for what they believe, the two women continue their efforts at the risk of destroying their own personal lives. Will the town learn the truth about the hazards that are making their people sick... before it’s too late? Based on a true story. Drama. 92 Minutes.

If you know any movie Ruby Dee is in, it has got to be great. She and her husband Ossie Davis never did any movies
unless it was up to standards, high quality, high standards of their own, not of the studios. Same with Denzel.
He only take movies that has quality in them and a message, expect trainig day. I hate that movie. LOL

Well, this movie is the same. It is a great movie of 2 women fighting the government about their town.

Taking it back from the ills that it has received from bad business in their town. It is good and I don't want to tell you all about it. JUST BUY IT AND ENJOY IT WITH YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS. REMINDS YOU OF THE 60s fighting and protesting.

Let your kids see this so they can learn how to fight for themselves and their communities when it comes their turn as an adult. They need to know that if you see a serious problem that affects your community and the people around you, you can FIGHT BACK and clean it up and make the people responsible, fix the problem and compensate the people.
