Synopsis – What to Expect from “A Civil Action”
A Civil Action is a 1998 legal drama directed by Steven Zaillian and starring John Travolta, Robert Duvall, and William H. Macy.
The movie follows the true story of a personal injury attorney, Jan Schlichtmann (Travolta), who takes on a case against two industrial giants accused of polluting a local water supply and causing a number of deaths in a small Massachusetts town.
The case pits Schlichtmann and his small team of lawyers against the powerful corporate defense lawyers, who are determined to win the case at any cost. As the case progresses, Schlichtmann and his team uncover an extensive web of corporate and governmental deceit and negligence, and Schlichtmann’s own moral and ethical convictions are put to the test.
The case takes a toll on Schlichtmann and his team, both emotionally and financially, as they battle against the powerful corporate lawyers and the odds of winning the case. In the end, Schlichtmann and his team are faced with a difficult decision: to settle for a fraction of what they could have won or to take the case to trial and risk losing it all.
A Civil Action is an intense and gripping drama that shows the power of corporate greed and the human cost of justice. It is a powerful and thought-provoking story of courage and determination in the face of overwhelming odds.
