Patrick (Gilles Lellouche) is a tenacious lawyer specializing in environmental law. France (Emmanuelle Bercot) is a schoolteacher who becomes an activist after her husband develops cancer from exposure to a pesticide. Mathias (Pierre Niney) is an ambitious lobbyist working for an international chemical corporation. The paths of these characters collide as the lives of thousands are affected by a tragic act that sparks a powerful movement while the corporation fights to prevent the truth from being revealed.

This David and Goliath fight between farmers and multinational pesticide companies is an engaging examination of the pesticide industry, politics, and the power of lobbyists.

“The mysteries of power mingle in a gripping and fascinating film from start to finish.” —Franceinfo Culture

“Goliath is a well-written and superbly acted film which sheds light on the unethical, dirty tactics of lobbyists while at the same time highlighting the strength and determination of others.” —Matilda Marseillaise, All Things French and Francophone in Australia

“Dramatic and thought-provoking, Goliath is a film about rebellion and desperation that will leave you second-guessing everything you know about environmental politics.” —Pelican Magazine

“Exceptionally enthralling.” —The Flip Side

The aptly titled Goliath resonates with anger and passion. It’s thought-provoking, entirely (and frighteningly) credible, and rendered with intelligence. It’s a first-class piece of entertainment. —Yes Weekly

Erin Brockovich with a grittier edge.” —DigiGods
