‘A Private War’ Explores the True Story of War Correspondent Marie Colvin


Editor’s Note: This trailer features war related violence and is not appropriate for all audiences, no matter how amazing Marie Colvin is.

The new film A Private War focuses on the life and career of one of the most celebrated correspondents of our lives, Marie Colvin. Portrayed by Rosamund Pike, the film shows the trauma of a life behind war zones and the story behind the journalist. The film also features Jamie Dornan, Stanley Tucci and Tom Hollander.

Here’s the official synopsis:

In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin (Academy Award nominee 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. Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, A PRIVATE WAR is brought to the screen by Academy Award nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding narrative feature debut.

A Private War comes to theaters November 2, 2018.
