One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.
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 front lines 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 — 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.
Featuring Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Tom Hollander
Awards and Reviews
BFI London Film Festival, Toronto Intl Film Festival, Hamptons Intl Film Festival Official Selections
“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.” – Washington Post
“A stunningly moving, yet never mawkish, dissection of Marie Colvin’s self-aware motivations, irrevocable positions, flawed interpersonal skills, and narrative ability to make people stop and care about whatever story was compelling her to risk her life.” – The Wrap
A PRIVATE WAR is rated 15. Visit the BBFC website for full details (may include plot spoilers).
