Inspired by the Vanity Far article "Marie Colvin's Private War" by Marie Brenner, the film is based on an exciting true story that follows legendary war journalist Marie Colvin, played by Academy Award® nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl), and prominent war photographer Paul Conroy, played by Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades Franchise).
Hailed by critics as "an incredibly sophisticated, psychologically immersive film" (Tim Gray, Variety), A Private War is a love letter to journalism that depicts the passion and fearlessness of those who report from conflict zones.
