not a very engaging or balanced look at the libel case in england which found two working class stiffs going against mcdonald’s. mcdonald’s sued them for passing out flyers which detailed the various ways in which mcdonald’s was bad for the world (pollution, health, animal cruelty, etc.). the dramatizations were done by ken loach which was surprising because he’s reputed to have talent. also, not to be a mcdonald’s advocate, but a lot of the data was false as much of the film is outdated; the same is true for “Fast Food Nation,” the author of which is interviewed throughout the picture.
overall, i felt that the film was more libelous than the leaflets for which they were sued. i’d skip this one.
