A Civil Action (1998)
Think Erin Brokovich but with John Travolta instead of Julia Roberts. They're both true stories about contaminated water, its effects on the health of small communities, and the tribulations of the law firms that try to make the situation right. This one has a very good supporting cast, including William H. Macy, Tony Shaloub, and Robert Duvall in an Oscar-nominated role. They're all lawyers and none are particularly sympathetic characters, but they are realistic characters and by the end, you're really feeling things right alongside them.
My Netflix rating: 3 stars
