A Private War (2019)
In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike) is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time.
Colvin is utterly fearless; 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.
Colvin’s work forces her sacrifices relationships and, over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the traumas she’s witnessed begin to take their toll.
Her mission to show the true cost of war leads her, along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan), to embark on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.
Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, A Private War is brought to the screen by critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman.
