Reviews:
"[A]n incredibly sophisticated, psychologically immersive film around late real-life war correspondent Marie Colvin, the rock-star Sunday Times reporter..." - 09/29/2018 Variety


"[V]iscerally communicating the urgency Colvin felt about her work....A PRIVATE WAR suggests Colvin was nearly incapable of doing anything else." - 09/12/2018 Hollywood Reporter


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The dramatic, personal story of Colvin herself is absorbingly told here, largely because of Pike’s dynamic performance, showing us a woman who was courageous enough to risk her life for a story on a daily basis but remained vulnerable enough to make the stories viscerally compelling." - 11/02/2018 RogerEbert.com


"As played by Rosamund Pike, Colvin is steely, stubborn, courageous, chain-smoking, vodka-swilling, an old-school Fourth-Estater and saltier than the Sargasso Sea." - 11/02/2018 Rolling Stone


"[A] deeply distressing, authentically moving psychological study of unswerving obsession....Anchored by Rosamund Pike’s powerhouse lead performance..." - 11/01/2018 New York Times


"At its turbulent peak, A PRIVATE WAR movingly depicts Marie Colvin’s conflict reporting as an act of personal and moral witness." - 11/02/2018 Film Comment
