"Compelling and often shocking." - TIME OUT (http://www.timeout.com/film/reviews/93473/big-boys-gone-bananas.html)

Big Boys is about the lengths Big Business, in this case Big US agribiz in the shape of the Dole Food Company to suppress the truth.  Dole invoke the full force of the law to try and persuade Gerrten to withdraw his film about the plight of Nicuaguan Plantation workers.  An epic contest ensues between right and wrong.

"This important documentary is an account of what it's like being on the receiving end when a rich, ruthless international corporation dislikes what you say and do." - THE GUARDIAN (http://www.guardian.co.uk/film/2012/sep/23/big-boys-gone-bananas-review)
