The Whistleblower

Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardener), Vanessa Redgrave (Camelot) and Monica Bellucci (Irreversible) star in this real-life thriller based on the experiences of Kathryn Bolkovac (Weisz), a Nebraska cop who served as a peacekeeper in postwar Bosnia. While working with the United Nations' Gender Office, she investigated reports of rape, domestic abuse and sex trafficking. Unfortunately, she uncovered members of the U.N. actually aiding and abetting local sex traffickers. Bravely, she set out to blow the whistle on the corruption--no easy task since U.N. employees are granted diplomatic immunity. As you might expect, the topic is quite serious and not much fun. But Weisz is, as always, commanding. 112 minutes R.
