the_informantBased on a tattle-tale, “The Informant!” arrives on DVD and Blu-ray Combo Pack Feb. 23 from Warner Home Video.  Matt Damon stars in this true story about an over-eager corporate executive turned FBI informant whose ever-changing account of the situation makes it almost impossible to decipher what is real and what is the product of his active imagination.

The U.S. government decides to go after an agri-business giant with a price-fixing accusation, based on the evidence submitted by their star witness, vice president turned informant, Mark Whiteacre. Even as he exposes his company’s multi-national price-fixing conspiracy, Whitacre envisions himself being hailed as a hero of the common man and handed a promotion. But before all that can happen, the FBI needs evidence, so Whitacre eagerly agrees to wear a wire, imagining himself as a kind of de facto secret agent. However, Whitacre’s ever-changing account frustrates the agents and threatens the case as it becomes almost impossible to determine the truth.

From Academy Award® winning director, Steven Soderbergh (Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13, Traffic, Erin Brockovich), “The Informant!” stars Academy Award® winner Matt Damon (Ocean’s 11, 12 and 13, The Bourne Identity, The Departed), Golden Globe™ winner Scott Bakula (TV’s Men of a Certain Age, Quantum Leap), Joel McHale (TV’s The Soup, TV’s Community) and Melanie Lynskey (Up in the Air, TV’s Two and a Half Men).
