  • Inspired by real events, writer/director Larysa Kondracki's intense docudrama tells the tale of an American policewoman who uncovers evidence of human trafficking while assisting a U.N. peacekeeping mission in Bosnia. Nebraska cop Kathy Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz) is caught in the middle of a vicious custody battle with her ex-husband when she seizes the opportunity to make a quick 100,000 dollars tax-free by spending six months in Bosnia as a U.N. peacekeeper. Shortly after Kathy arrives in Bosnia, Human Rights Commission head Madeleine Rees (Vanessa Redgrave) promotes her to the U.N.'s Gender Office, where she begins studying sexual-assault cases. But when Kathy discovers that her fellow peacekeepers are involved in a human-trafficking ring, the ensuing controversy makes her the target of some very powerful -- and incredibly ruthless -- people.

  • Critic Reviews
    3 stars out of 5 -- "Severe and unflinching, THE WHISTLEBLOWER relies on journalistic realism to pack its punch."
    Box Office

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The movie, constructed as a relentless and frightening thriller, stars Rachel Weisz in one of her best performances..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "It's a gritty, often unsettling piece of work....It's Weisz's face that provides the best window into the movie's motives and intentions."

    "THE WHISTLEBLOWER succeeds....It's staged with an understatement that's rooted in the muddy squalor of reality." -- Grade: B
