Matt Damon stars in this peculiar dark comedy directed by Steven Soderbergh. The movie is based on a true story detailed in a long non-fiction book by Kurt Eichenwald. Damon plays Mark Whitacre, a senior executive at the Decatur, Illinois, corporate headquarters of agribusiness giant Archer Daniels Midland. In the 1990s Whitacre voluntarily became an FBI informant, gathering evidence of ADM's price fixing. However while working for the FBI and taping his co-workers, it's discovered that Whitacre was also embezzling $9 million from his own company while simultaneously hoping to be elected as CEO following the arrest and conviction of the remaining upper management members.
