La Fille de Brest

128 mins

in French with EN subs

FRA | 2016 | dir. Emmanuelle Bercot, with Sidse Babett Knudsen, Benoît Magimel, Charlotte Laemmel

In a hospital in Brest, a lung specialist establishes a direct link between suspicious deaths and the consumption of Mediator, a drug that has been on the market for 30 years. From its confidential beginnings to the media frenzy surrounding the case, this David-versus-Goliath fable, based on a true story, climaxes in a victory for truth. In the same vein as Steven Soderbergh’s Erin Brokovich, Emmanuelle Bercot shows a thrilling Sidse Babett Knudsen (Borgen) managing against all odds to break a dubious pharmaceutical giant.
