The rare documentary that aims to rattle instead of confirm your worldview, "Pandora's Promise" follows a splinter group of environmental activists who have stunningly determined nuclear energy to be the best option for sustainably keeping pace with our wildly expanding energy consumption while also curtailing our carbon footprint. Made by Oscar-nominated director Robert Stone ("Radio Bikini") with persuasive zeal, the documentary doesn’t shy from the nuclear disasters that have left the world leery of the nuclear option, showing these events to be wholly avoidable and less catastrophic than originally imagined. Sure to inspire hearty debate, "Pandora's Promise" is a film willing to confront inconvenient truths head-on.
