Veronica Guerin

Veronica Guerin(2003)

Grade: B-

Cate Blanchette is an amazing actress, one of my favourites. Blanchette is always a gem in her films. This is a film based on a true story of an Irish journalist, Veronica Guerin, who risks her life to bring down notorious drug lords. As I said Cate Blanchette was brilliant in this film, but the rest of the cast wasnt as memorable. I couldnt really relate with Blanchette's character; I couldnt decide if what she did was heroic or stupid; the film didnt really didn't explain her motives. I thought the film was a bit boring at parts and very much a typical TV drama. The film was still quite moving though and was fairly decent. I think Blanchette's performance makes it worthwhile.
