War correspondent Marie Colvin was driven by bravery, a commitment to giving a voice to the silent, and conveying the truth of the inhumanity of war. Rosamund Pike excels in the role of the American-born journalist, her determination undiminished by the explosion which led her to wear a distinctive eye patch. While harrowing in places, the film is informed by the filmmakers’ determination to convey the risks Colvin took in far-flung places to try and make the rest of the world care.
