One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.
John Walcott, Warren Strobel, Jonathan Landay, and their families all make cameos in the film. See more »
At 34:33 Landay (Woody) pulls out a $20 that shows President Jackson w/o an oval background around his portrait. This version was not introduced until 2003. The time of this scene was in 2002. He should have had an earlier version, eg the one introduced in 1998 with the oval frame around his head. See more »

As you would expect with such a stellar cast, fine performances all round. I think the message of this film is even more pertinent today. It is beholden on us all, to look with a critical eye, at what those in power are saying; is it true, where is the evidence? If each of us can take some measure of skepticism, as shown by the journalists portrayed here, our society will be all the better for it. This film does truly crystalise, the criminal actions of the leaders of the time and the abject failure of the leading media organisations, whose primary function, is to hold those very same, to account.
