In a world where journalism is under attack, Marie Colvin is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. A fearless and rebellious spirit, she finds herself driven to the frontlines of conflicts across the globe, determined to give voice to the voiceless.
After sacrificing relationships,over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she's witnessed takes its toll. Yet, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her - along with war photographer Paul Conroy - to take on the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.
Based on the extraordinary life of Marie Colvin, 'A Private War' is brought to the screen by Academy Award nominee and critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker Matthew Heineman in his pulse-pounding feature debut.
