A Private War (15)
Cast. Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Stanley Tucci, Tom Hollander.
Marie Colvin had a fearless approach to capturing human stories in war zones. Widely recognised by the eye patch she insouciantly sported, the result of a grenade attack during an interview with Tamil Tiger rebels, she was a striking figure in London culture circles and as much at home with a Martini at a party as she was confronting Muammar Gaddafi in an interview shortly before his death. This is a devastating portrait of a complex, brilliant woman. Pike fiercely inhabits Colvin, occasionally arrogant, but also deeply compassionate and committed and who sacrificed her own safety and happiness to bear witness to the very human cost of armed conflict.
