Review: The Whistleblower on DVD


Inspired by actual events, Kathy (Academy Award® winner Rachel Weisz) is an American police officer who takes a job working as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia. Her expectations of helping to rebuild a devastated country are dashed when she uncovers a dangerous reality of corruption, cover-up and intrigue amid a world of private contractors and multinational diplomatic doubletalk. Directed by first time filmmaker Larysa Kondracki, the film also stars Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave, Monica Bellucci and Academy Award nominee David Strathairn.


Last night, my husband and I watched The Whistleblower after eating dinner. I was very interested to see this movie because it is based on a true story. The Whistleblower is a great film. I have to admit that there were times that it is hard to watch. I wouldn't say that it is extremely graphic or anything like that but some of the stuff that goes on turned my stomach. With this being said, I think (and hope) that the movie will open everyone's eyes to the seriousness and reality of human trafficking.  I do recommend watching this film and also being prepared for what you will see.
