What it’s about: This offbeat comedy asks: what was Mark Whitacre thinking? He was a rising star at agri-industry giant Archer Daniels Midland (ADM). Suddenly Whitacre turned into a whistleblower in one of the highest-ranking corporate whistleblower in corporate American history. The problem for the FBI is they need evidence, and Whitacre himself is not the best witness as his active imagination tends to lead the investigation comically astray.
SheKnows movie fact: Produced by Damon’s good friend and frequent co-star (Ocean's 11 movies), George Clooney.
