As comedian Ricky Gervais said so pointedly during the Golden Globes, Hollywood is full of people with no experience in the real world who think they should tell the rest of us how to live.

A perfect example of this is “Dark Waters,” a film now down to about 100 screen across America in spite of an A-list cast that includes Mark Ruffalo (who also served as producer), Oscar-winner Anne Hathaway, Bill Pullman and Tim Robbins, a liberal’s liberal probably best known as Susan Sarandon’s former longtime lover. The film’s global gross is just more than $11 million, according to IMDb.com, which is probably less than it cost to make and market. But there are potentially billions on the line, so the folks behind it probably would think it cheap at twice the price.
