Marie Colvin (played here with impressive conviction by Rosamund Pike) was a tireless correspondent, travelling to some of the most dangerous conflicts in the world - from Sri Lanka to Syria to Iraq - risking her life to reveal the truth about unjust regimes and humanitarian crimes. The trauma of her experiences alienates her from her personal relationships, including Jamie Dornans war photographer and Stanley Tuccis would-be partner.The first feature from documentary director Matthew Heineman (Cartel Land), A Private War avoids biopic cliches and instead asks troubling deeper questions about Colvins motivations. Told with the genuine savagery and chaos of modern warfare, it is a testament to the pursuit of the truth at all costs.Director: Matthew HeinemanCast: ROSAMUND PIKE, JAMIE DORNAN, TOM HOLLANDER, STANLEY TUCCIRun time: 110 mins
