What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Dark Waters is a drama based on a 2016 New York Times Magazine article about huge chemical company DuPont knowingly using toxic substances in its billion-dollar products. Mark Ruffalo plays real-life lawyer Robert Bilott, who's trying to fight for the chemical's victims. The movie is harrowing and unsettling but extremely well made and absolutely worth watching. Expect some disturbing images, including sick and dying cows, diseased cow parts, deformities in humans, the shooting of a cow with a rifle (some blood shown), and a house being set on fire. Language is fairly strong, with a couple uses of "f--k," plus "s--t," "goddamn," and more. Teens skinny-dip in one scene, and a bare bottom is briefly seen. There's social drinking at a party and background cigarette smoking.
