Playing God

About the Film 

A fixture of America’s most tragic events, the charismatic and controversial lawyer charged with the monumental task of calculating the value of a human life following events like the 9/11 attacks and Sandy Hook massacre, is the subject of this perceptive account. Defenders, critics and the families—and Ken Feinberg himself—weigh in on the thorny legal, financial and moral dilemmas of this polarizing figure who at times seems virtually omnipotent.
