The true test of its efficacy will be how much it motivates viewers after the credits roll. It's an admirable aim, but the project itself feels disposable.

Easy to pigeon-hole as a true-life women-in-peril drama, Flint is entirely non-exploitative and honorable in its intentions and largely average in its execution, elevated mostly by a splendid ensemble of actresses.

Flint's writing is at times just atrocious, but these shabby-yet-neat houses are achingly real. And when the women do find each other, the genuine solace and warmth they bring to each other is what keeps the film humming along.

A righteous exercise. It just could be a better righteous exercise.

Well-meaning recounting of a city's toxic water problem.

It's a deeply personal narrative but hopefully one that spark further discourse.
