The Informant!

In 1995 the US government brought charges against agri-business colossus Archer Daniels Midlands for price fixing. The case was a huge cause célèbre, but what really caused a stir was the fact that the man who blew the whistle on ADM was its own Vice President, Mark Whitacre, who had collected years’ worth of evidence for the FBI. Though hardly a clean-cut figure himself (he was eventually imprisoned for fraud), Whitacre proved to be an example for many. Based on the book by Kurt Eichenwald, a journalist who followed the original events closely, ?The Informant!? is the story of an extraordinary and controversial man.
