Rosamund Pike stars opposite Jamie Dornan as the tireless correspondent Marie Colvin in the new biopic 'A Private War'. Discover the true story which inspired the biopic in this gripping and suspenseful documentary.
On 13 February 2012, two journalists entered war-ravaged Syria. One of them was celebrated Sunday Times war correspondent, Marie Colvin. The other was photographer, Paul Conroy. Their aim was to cover the plight of Syrian civilians trapped in Homs, a city under siege and relentless military attack from the Syrian army. Only one of them returned.
Based on the book of the same name by Paul Conroy, 'Under The Wire' tells the incredible story of his and Marie’s fateful mission – and Paul’s epic battle to escape the city, to tell the world of his fallen colleague and the plight of the people of Homs.
