Screenwriter Steven Zaillian, who won a Best Screenplay Academy Award for "Schindler's List" (1993), both adapted and directed this powerful true story, based on the acclaimed book by Jonathan Harr. "A Civil Action" (1998) tells of a Massachusetts community battling giant corporations with impossibly deep pockets as their children contract leukemia from the local water supply. John Travolta is outstanding as the cynical lawyer who is transformed by the case. The rest of the cast includes Kathleen Quinlan, Jon Lithgow, William H. Macy, Tony Shaloub, James Gandolfini and Robert Duvall, who was nominated for an Oscar, as was legendary cameraman Conrad Hall.
