Summary Academy Award winner Matt Damon stars in a dark comedy espionage thriller from Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh and producer George Clooney based on a true story of the highest-ranking whistle-blower in U.S. corporate history--The Informant! What was Mark Whitacre thinking? A rising star at agri-industry giant Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Whitacre (Damon--The Departed) suddenly turns whistleblower. Even as he exposes his company's multinational price-fixing conspiracy to the FBI, Whitacre envisions himself being hailed as a hero of the common man and handed a promotion. But before all that can happen, the FBI needs evidence, so Whitacre eagerly agrees to wear a wire and carry a hidden tape recorder in his briefcase, imagining himself as a kind of de facto secret agent.
