A vibrant investigation of the predicament of central Indian cotton farmers, caught up in biotech broker Monsanto's genetically modified seed program. Refused loans by legitimate banks, the farmers borrow from illegal moneylenders at seven percent interest per month and inevitably fall into irredeemable debt, further aggravated by low yields and a need for more fertilizer and water. Out of shame, some commit suicide by drinking Monsanto’s pesticide – such deaths now number over 200,000. The tiny miracle in this seemingly hopeless globalization tragedy is the daughter of one such farmer, a council head who was the first in his village to kill himself. Eighteen-year-old Manjusha yearns to be a journalist to expose the reasons for the suicides, but she has no mentor and certainly no encouragement.

(jp) wrote: A 1998 adaptation of a Koontz novel. It's notable for McGowan, Schreiber, and Affleck. Supernatural schlock fans should like it.
(kr) wrote: Everything about this movie (the direction, performances, the editing, etc.) seem to have been done in a protracted state of heightened brilliance. The result is damn near flawless. Easily Pacino's best performance as it bridges his early great subtle work with his more uneven, but still engaging, over-the-top roles he's known for now.
(ru) wrote: Superb film! Richard Harris is blistering as the strangely sympathetic but utterly terrifying Frank. Rachel Roberts manages to out-act Harris, putting in an astonishing performance as a lonely, ice-cold, sickly widow. The music gives the film a marvellous sense of dread. Anderson's direction is wonderful, particularly in the scenes between Harris and Roberts.
