The Whistleblower Movie Review

Today, January 24th, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment has released The Whistleblower onto Blu-ray and DVD!  My husband and I received a copy of this movie to review and we both loved it!  The Whistleblower is a real attention grabbing movie and I was glued to the television the entire time!  Rachel Weisz delivers a stunning performance as the main character Kathryn Bolkovac who uncovers a deadly sex trafficking ring in Bosnia.  Many high ranking officials are involved in the scandal and seem to be untouchable for their crimes.  This movie is based on a true story and was a big eye-opener for me.  This is not one for the kids, but one that will have you thinking for a while after you have finished watching.

Movie Summary:  

How far will one woman go to fight global injustice? Clandestine secrets are waiting to be exposed in the gripping dramatic thriller THE WHISTLEBLOWER, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD January 24 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment.  Inspired by true events, THE WHISTLEBLOWER has been met with praise by critics and heralded at the Palm Springs International Film Festival (“Best Narrative Feature”), Seattle Film Festival (“Best Director”) and Whistler Film Festival (“Best Film,” “Best Narrative Feature”).

Academy Award winners Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardner) and Vanessa Redgrave (Julia) head a powerful cast that includes Oscar® Nominee David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck) in writer-director Larysa Kondracki’s harrowing dramatic thriller.  When Nebraska cop Kathryn Bolkovac (Weisz) accepts a U.N. peacekeeper position in post-war Bosnia, she uncovers a deadly sex trafficking ring.  After learning that fellow peacekeepers and military contractors are involved in the ghastly practice and its cover-up, Bolkovac risks her own life to save the lives of others and expose the corruption.  With masterful acting and a heart-racing plot, THE WHISTLEBLOWER is an acclaimed film inspired by actual events and includes stellar supporting performances from Benedict Cumberbatch (“Sherlock”), Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Reloaded) and David Hewlett (“Stargate: Atlantis”).
