One of the most anticipated Hollywood films of the fall, director Steven Sodeburgh’s “The Informant!”, is being released nationally today (Friday).

The film, starring Matt Damon, is about the real life FBI investigation into price fixing by agribusiness giant Archer Daniels Midland, or ADM.

The film is adapted from the book of the same title written by New York Times reporter Kurt Eichenwald in 2000. WMNF spoke with Eichenwald earlier this week about how he went about putting all the research he did on the story into a narrative form.
