A Private War (2018, D: Heineman) S: Pike, Dornan, Tucci, Hollander





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 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 (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 Academy Award nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding narrative feature debut.

Rosamund Pike should have gotten a Oscar nom for this and she was better in this than Gone Girl and much more deserving than Melissa McCarthy.

I watched this last night and it was really good. Sometimes I forgot I was watching a narrative feature instead of a documentary. No surprise considering that is the director's background. Pike was exceptional and yes, should've been nominated for an Oscar, especially over Yalitza Aparicio.
