I think I first learned about Journalist Marie Colvin on 60 Minutes. My husband and I watched the movie yesterday. It is based on an article in Vanity Fair by Arash Amel titled “Marie Colvin’s Private War.”
This was a really well-done movie, allowing you to get to know her as a driven, gutsy journalist whose personal mission was to tell you the stories of the real cost of war to individuals.
We ended up feeling an overwhelming respect for her and her team, being proud to live on the same planet. She died covering the war in Homs, Syria in 2012.
The movie stars Rosamond Pike as Marie Colvin, and Jamie Dornan as Paul Conroy.
I highly recommend this movie.
