Movie Info

This environmental disaster movie documents the tragedy when the Exxon Valdez dumped 11 million gallons of oil into Alaska's Prince William Sound. With John Heard as the environmental specialist on the scene venting his moral outrage and Christopher Lloyd hoisted on his own petard as the industrial scapegoat, this is a showcase for the environmental devastation and ecological destructiveness of man's intervention with nature.
