A Private War – Marie Colvin (Rosamund Pike), one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, 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 personal relationships, instead focusing on her work, which takes a toll on her. 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. Opens today in Toronto, Vancouver and Montréal and wide on November 23.
