Based on a true story of Dublin journalist Veronica Guerin whose exposes of drug dealers cost her her life is an extraordinary and a very perceptive work.
Not in a long time have I seen an exceptional acting, writing and storytelling all at once. It's a tragic film, but I love the story and the characters, and I don't feel that a review can do to this film justice. The fact that Guerin is in a hostile land, a country that is defined by the needs and desires of men, at the cost of a woman.
It's a suspense-filled and thrilling story that will have you on the edge of your seat.What?s almost most fascinating about this character, and the way she?s portrayed by the film, is that in any other (fictional) movie, Guerin would be a man.
My dear Cate Blanchett gives something special and even magical performance once again.
