Notable husband-in-peril titles from the Netflix Watch Instantly world
A Mighty Heart (2007)
Directed by Michael Winterbottom
Cast: Angelina Jolie, Dan Futterman, Irfan Khan, Jillian Armenante, Denis O'Hare, Archie Panjabi, San Banarje, Azfar Ali
Angelina Jolie has gotten a lot of attention for her brave, unglamorous portrayal of Mariane Pearl's real-life account of searching for her husband, Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, who was kidnapped in Pakistan. The low-key docudrama (directed by 24 Hour Party People's Michael Winterbottom) thrives on gritty detail, though audiences not already interested in the subject matter may find it a demanding and depressing film. In English, French, Urdu and Arabic with English subtitles.
