Another true story, this one about tobacco insider Jeffrey Wigand (played by Russel Crowe) and his historic relationship with 60 Minutes producer Lowell Bergman (Al Pacino). Together, they do what everyone said was impossible: they took on big tobacco. A harrowing story about a modern hero. Both Crowe and Pacino do an amazing job in this oscar-nominated film. This is not really an unknown or independant film, but I've found alot of people have not yet seen it. Some people I know said they thought it was slow, but I think they just missed the point.
