"This woman from a  pharmaceutical company was standing in the hall way and she was just crying and she grabbed my arm as I came out of the theater and was like 'I work for a pharmaceutical company and I've worked there for years and this film completely changed the way I see what my company is doing and what I'm doing and I don't know what I'm going to do next but thank-you for this movie'" Brit shared.
