The Devil has a Name


SYNOPSIS

Widowed, broke and adrift, farmer Fred Stern finds a new purpose in life when he learns that a multi-national oil company has been polluting his water. But as his crusade against the powers that be spills out of the courtroom and into his personal life, Fred must find a way to avoid the ruin of his farm, his family and his dreams. Inspired by bizarre, true events, The Devil Has a Name pulls back the curtain on the culture of greed that poisons Corporate America, from sea to polluted sea.


REVIEWS

  • Chicago.suntimes.com: What a crackling and often darkly funny script this is, "The Devil Has a Name" is a master class in casting.
  • RogerEbert.com: A scenery-chewing feast. And the familiarity of some of it - Martin Sheen as a righteous lawyer doing his righteous Martin Sheen thing, the easy chemistry of Strathairn and right-hand-man Olmos as they speak unsubtitled Spanish at each other - lends a Social-Justice-Movie Comfort Vibe to the proceedings.
  • Blu-ray.com: A noble endeavor with something to share about corruption.
  • Thefilmstage.com: Audiences have a good time while also learning about the lengths such corruption will go.
  • The Guardian.com: A fire-breathing thriller about a farmer taking on Big Oil. Kate Bosworth shines in a juicy role as a cigar-smoking oil matriarch in this drama directed by veteran actor Edward James Olmos.
  • Hollywoodreporter.com: The Devil Has a Name is a whistleblower drama a la Erin Brockovich that also wants to be a classic noir whodunit. Olmos balances a grim tale of corporate exploitation, environmental degradation and the plight of the American farmer with delightful buddy-comedy pairings.
