The story of the last years of Marie Colvin (Pike), celebrated war correspondent. Pike’s intrinsic frostiness is perfect for Colvin’s determination, resourcefulness and arrogance, and while Dornan, Hollander and Tucci are all good as (respectively) photographer, editor and lover, it’s Pike’s show, and a mesmerising, discomforting and inspiring one.
