    Marie Colvin (Rosamund Pike) is the most celebrated war correspondent of our era - a woman 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. A pulse-pounding story told from the frontlines of the most dangerous battlefields in the world, A PRIVATE WAR chronicles Colvin's extraordinary life.

    Starring Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan,Stanley Tucci and Tom Hollander.

    Saw it tonight (along with a live Q&A after) what a powerful film. Comes across more like a documentary than film, it’s that realistic in its depiction of war. It’s sad and had me gripped from the beginning. It’s not your traditional biopic and if you’re looking for a plot driven narrative you won’t get it here, what you do get is an absolutely barnstorming performance from Pike, such a pity it hasn’t been acknowledged more. A gritty and at times tough watch but highly recommended. 8/10
