A Private War

Dir. Matthew Heineman. UK/USA, 2018. 1h 50m. Starring Rosamund Pike, Tom Hollander, Jamie Dornan, Stanley Tucci, Faye Marsay, Greg Wise.

The award-winning documentary filmmaker of Cartel Land directs this compelling drama about celebrated war correspondent Marie Colvin, who was tragically killed during the 2012 siege of Homs in Syria.

'Ragged yet sumptuous, filled with moments for devastating monologues yet never so obvious as to be self-aggrandizing.’ ★★★★ Jonathan Rothkopf, Time Out

‘Heineman and screenwriter Arash Amel remind the audience not just of the humanism that drives so many reporters, but also the extreme danger they put themselves in to bring us the truth.’ Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
