“We are peacekeepers who came to protect the innocent, but now prey upon them in the worst ways possible. We may be accused of thinking with our hearts instead of our heads, but we will have our humanity. ” – Kathryn

Brief Synopsis – An American police officer takes a job to he a peacekeepers in Bosnia during the 1990’s and finds out deadly secrets while investigating a crime.
My Take on it – Over the past few months, I have had this movie recommended to me a few times and finally got around to seeing it.
The story itself is very compelling and interesting and the fact that it’s based on real events, makes it that more powerful and raises the impact level.
Knowing that this was instrumental in changing important world events also makes it even more essential to watch.
Rachel Weisz is great here because one can really feel her frustration when trying to work within a system built to try and stop her.
Her paranoia about not knowing who to trust also adds to much of the suspense of the film.
Bottom Line – Interesting and compelling story that really helped change policy. Weisz is great in this film because you can feel her frustration when not knowing who she can trust. Recommended!
