Great movie if you take the time to watch. Not like other movies with a beautiful ending.

"A true insight"

A penetrating motion picture; Rosamund Pike and indeed any number of her support actors should have had accolades for this film. The characters are phenomenal, the performances incredible. A beautiful and ever lasting tribute to one of humanity. Hard hitting, riveting, and self reflecting. A must see.


A Private War

In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Rosamund Pike) 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. Yet, 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.

Critic Reviews:

  • " Pike has the physicality required for such a role – even unashamedly stripping down to Colvin's infamous La Perla bra – but the magnificence of her performance is that she emotes just as piercingly true in the stillness as she does in the action. " – Candice McMillan
  • " It is a sensational work of cinema: aggressively told and emotionally powerful. " – Grant Watson
  • " A gripping account of a remarkable woman and journalist, anchored by an exceptional lead performance from Pike. " – Andrew Gaudion
