How to have Matt Damon play you in a Hollywood Film
The epic story of Mark Whitacre
The life of Mark Whitacre is an epic one. A story of exceptional talent, drive, greed is also a story of redemption, transformation, and love. I met Mark at a men’s lunch event. He was the speaker that day; I was the speaker a few months before that, and we were introduced to each other.
A somewhat fictionalized and truncated version of the story was told in the Hollywood film The Informant, where Matt Damon plays Mark Whitacre. The full story is far more nuanced and inspiring.
