Here’s the official look plot synopsis of A Private War, the upcoming biography drama movie directed by Matthew Heineman and starring Rosamund Pike:
“The story of American war correspondent, Marie Colvin (portrayed by Rosamund Pike).
The thriller is told from the front lines of the most dangerous battlefields in the world, the place Colvin often found herself as she became the most celebrated war correspondent of her era. She was known as a woman as comfortable downing Martinis with the posh elite of high-society as she was staring down warlords and fleeing from gunfire. Driven by an enduring desire to bear witness and give voice to the voiceless, Colvin’s conflict zone coverage included Chechnya, Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka, where she lost her left eye in 2001. Colvin, who wore a distinctive eye patch after that, died in early 2012 during a rocket attack covering the civil war in Syria for the U.K.’s Sunday Times.”
Besides Rosamund Pike, the cast also includes Jamie Dornan, Stanley Tucci, Tom Hollander, Alexandra Moen, Corey Johnson, Natasha Jayetileke, Hilton McRae, Raad Rawi, Pano Masti, Manoj Anand, Jesuthasan Antonythasan, Imogen King, Rudy Valentino Grant, Michael Haydon, Kishore Bhatt, Bharat Mistri, Gurnita Kaur Kahlon, and Ian Morine.
