The ‘Flint’ Official Movie Trailer

Flint is the gripping retelling of a crisis that shook a nation and shines a light on the whistleblowers who exposed the biggest environmental scandal of our generation. LeeAnne Walters (Betsy Brandt, “Breaking Bad”), Melissa Mays (Marin Ireland, “Sneaky Pete”) and Nayyirah Shariff (Jill Scott, “Steel Magnolias”) join forces after discovering that the drinking water in Flint, Michigan is contaminated, resulting in a slew of devastating medical problems for their families. When their claims go unheeded, they band together to expose the wrongdoings committed by their reckless, bean-counting government officials whose carelessness caused irrevocable harm to the lives of its residents.” ~ Lifetime

The Detroit Free Press reports that “Flint was inspired by a Time magazine report from February 2016, ‘The Poisoning of an American City.’ ”

      If we can’t end the influence of Big Money on politics, U.S. lawmakers will never serve with their brains or hearts. (Except for a few like Bernie.)

    Flint may just be a harbinger of what will happen all over the US thanks to the scoundrel who is now head of the EPA.

      Yes, Ken! It will get much worse more quickly. Meanwhile, it has already begun. Remember the Reuters investigation last year: https://www.reuters.com/investigates/special-report/usa-lead-testing/

      “A Reuters examination of lead testing results across the country found almost 3,000 areas with poisoning rates far higher than in the tainted Michigan city. Yet many of these lead hotspots are receiving little attention or funding.”
