The story of one of the world's greatest writers, a man who proved that one voice can overcome injustice and change the course of a nation is immortalized in The Life of Emile Zola. From his days as a struggling writer in Paris to his first success with the publication of Nana and his brilliant J'accuse, which exposes the Dreyfuss affair as a gross miscarriage of justice to cover up government incompetence, Emile Zola grows into an important voice for art, truth and justice.

Critics Consensus: Well-written, well-meaning and solidly acted, The Life of Emile Zola film may ultimately be more earnest than dramatically engaging.
