I did watch it...thought it gave a good representation of how the men and women that were on the rig, as well as their families were impacted. Also showed the greed of the oil companies by putting production (and profits) over safety. I have tried to use the beginning scenes of the film to show people here in North Carolina what the huge infrastructure of oil drilling looks like. Unfortunately, many of my friends have never lived in an area where oil is produced and think offshore drilling is just about having some rigs out in the ocean. Particularly relevant given the news of the last couple of days.
