Frédéric Tellier | 2022 | Drama, Thriller | France | French with English subtitles | 122 minutes
Patrick is a tenacious lawyer specializing in environmental law. France is a schoolteacher who becomes an activist after her husband develops cancer from exposure to a pesticide. Mathias is an ambitious lobbyist working for an international chemical corporation. The paths of these characters collide as the lives of thousands are affected by a tragic act that sparks a powerful movement while the corporation fights to prevent the truth from being revealed.
“Goliath is a well-written and superbly acted film which sheds light on the unethical, dirty tactics of lobbyists while at the same time highlighting the strength and determination of others. Both male leads in Goliath (Gilles Lellouche, Pierre Niney) were nominated for best actor at the César Awards and deservingly so.” – Matilda Marseillaise film review.
