In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin 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.
Drama War - This is a fact-based drama aimed at adult moviegoers that will
certainly please fans of star Rosamund Pike. Jamie Dornan fans will
be disappointed by his fairly small background role. Constant
language, violence, and some sexual content make the film not for
PROFANITY: Over 30 F-words; 10 S-words; a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief sex and unrelated nudity. VIOLENCE: Shootings and bloody injuries. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: War combat and explosions. COMEDY: None.
Roger EbertFull Review Very Good The dramatic, personal story of Colvin herself is absorbingly told here, largely because of Pike's dynamic performance, showing us a woman who was courageous enough to risk her life for a story on a daily basis but remained vulnerable enough to make the stories viscerally compelling.
Rex ReedFull Review Good A Private War is a movie of such idealism and purpose that it is well worth seeing... ...this is a movie worth seeing—a noble effort to polish the image of a superior journalist hell-bent on bringing the truth to the world.
