A movie I didn't know I wanted to see...but worth the time

I thought the story sounded interesting but didn't think I'd enjoy it as much as I did. Tells the story of a female war correspondent in the late 80's/90's/early 2000's who put her life on the line to report from war-torn areas in Africa, the Middle East and Asia, giving a voice to victims of war & conflict. She saw things no one should have to see, but continued to report even after it started to take a toll on her. Rosamund Pike is not my favorite actress, but she won me over with her portrayal of Marie Colvin.
