Christopher Walken, Zach Braff and Christina Ricci star in the true story of a small-town farmer taking on one of the largest agricultural and food manufacturing corporations. Watch the trailer for Percy vs Goliath...
In the vein of “Erin Brockovich,” and based on events from a 1998 lawsuit, the film follows small-town farmer Percy Schmeiser (Walken), who challenges a major conglomerate when the company's genetically modified canola is discovered in the 70-year-old farmer's crops. As he speaks out against the company's business practices, he realizes he is representing thousands of other disenfranchised farmers around the world fighting the same battle. Suddenly, he becomes an unsuspecting folk hero in a desperate war to protect farmers' rights and the world's food supply against what they see as corporate greed.
Directed by Clark Johnson (Your Honor, Homeland) from a screenplay by Garfield Lindsay Miller and Hilary Pryor, Percy vs Goliath stars Christopher Walken, Christina Ricci, Zach Braff, Roberta Maxwell, Martin Donavan, Peter Stebbings, Luke Kirby and Adam Beach and will be available on Digital & On Demand from April 30th.
