A PRIVATE WAR

A PRIVATE WAR

Matthew Heineman · UK · 2018 · 111 mins · 14A
IMDbRotten Tomatoes

Rosamund Pike stars as legendary war correspondent Marie Colvin in director Matthew Heineman's fact-based film that follows Colvin and photojournalist Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan) to the front lines of conflicts around the globe, culminating in a fateful trip to the besieged Syrian city of Homs in 2012. Even in a profession populated by daring personalities, Colvin is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of her generation, driven to the front lines of conflicts in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Asia in order to bear witness and give a voice to the voiceless – while testing her own notions of bravery and bravado.

Blinded in one eye in Sri Lanka – after being deliberately targeted in a 2001 grenade attack – she adopts a distinctive eye patch, a kind of trademark that signals her battle scars, her panache, and her rebellious streak. A New Yorker transplanted to London, she remains as comfortable moving amongst her adoptive city's high society as she is traversing war zones and confronting dictators. Yet she also sacrifices loving relationships, and, over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she's witnessed on the job takes its toll.

– Toronto International Film Festival

“This fierce, lived-in performance is so convincing that people who knew Colvin were shaken at the resemblance.” Los Angeles Times
“An intelligent and sophisticated biopic with a tour-de-force performance from Pike.” Newsday
Cast Tom Hollander, Rosamund Pike, Faye Marsay
