FILM “A PRIVATE WAR”

Garter Lane Arts Centre, May Tuesday 21st at 7:30 pm

Celebrated war correspondent Marie Colvin is a woman who is as comfortable downing martinis with high society’s elite as she is brazenly staring down warlords and fleeing from gunfire. Driven by an enduring desire to bear witness and give voice to the voiceless, Colvin charges into danger, constantly testing the limits between bravery and bravado.
Rosamund Pike immerses herself in the role of the outspoken journalist with the trademark eyepatch whose unconventional approach to reporting on the human cost of war, aided by her professional partnership with photojournalist Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan), brought her international recognition, whilst privately she struggled to cope with PTSD and alcoholism.

Based on a Vanity Fair article, Heineman brings authenticity and urgency to this portrait of a towering figure in contemporary journalism.

Director: Matthew Heineman
