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. She is fearless, brave and rebellious, working on some of the most dangerous frontlines of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless, challenging the limits between bravery and bravado.
After falling injured from being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she now wears an eye patch, but this doesn’t stop her being as comfortable sipping martinis with London’s elite as she is confronting dictators. Colvin sacrifices loving relationships for her imperative work, but her personal life takes a hit as the trauma she’s witnessed begins takes its toll. But she has a mission to accomplish - to show the world the true cost of war which leads her and 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, this new release by Academy Award nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in a tense, nail-biting feature film debut.
