We are at the front with Marie Colvin, a celebrated true-life war correspondent for the Sunday Times in London. Colvin, played by Rosamund Pike, was an intense journalist who went to Iraq, Sri Lanka and Syria, driven to bring the story of real people home to her readers. She stood toe-to-toe with Gaddafi and others in her search for the truth. Cinematographer Robert Richardson (Inglourious Basterds) creates an environment both real and overwhelming.
