A documentary about a liquor company that got into pharmaceuticals, ended up selling a pill to combat morning sickness that caused an ungodly amount of birth defects in British children, and the editor of a newspaper who did everything in his power to bring justice for the victims and their families.
As tragic and horrific as the story of Thalidomide is, the story of Harold Evans and his decades-long battle alongside those affected is just as inspiring and extraordinary. Does not matter in the slightest whether you’re familiar with this piece of history or not, as it is one that will glue you to the screen and move you throughout. More journalists like Harold Evans, please.
It’s got a cool 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
