A Private War (15)

Director Matthew Heinman. Biography/Drama/War

In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, while constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London's elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she's witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her - along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy - to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

A bit too much of a documentary rather than a good film. Rosamund Pyke was great as Marie Colvin but I think there was more to her story than the film managed to achieve.

Amazing performance by Rosamund Pike

Very realistically produced, some of the scenes a little harrowing to watch but on the whole a good film.
