...“Bidder 70,” for all its clumsiness, nails the way that a spontaneous act of courage can focus the mind and clarify an ideology. A handful of social-justice notables, including Robert Redford and the conservationist Terry Tempest Williams, weigh in, but it’s Mr. DeChristopher’s journey that resonates. Observing him as he ponders nonviolent protest, quotes Edward Abbey and visits mountaintop-removal coal mines in West Virginia, where he was born, we hear not the legal machinery humming inexorably in the background but the mental gears of an activist clicking into place.
