D: Matthew Heineman (City of Ghosts).
S: Rosamund Pike, Jamie Dornan, Stanley Tucci, Jesuthasan Antonythasan, Tom Hollander.
Rosamund Pike impresses as war correspondent Marie Colvin, though the direction and editing do not match the power of her performance. The film is a deeply affecting recognition of journalistic bravery, empathy, and conviction.
CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE ME? ★★★★☆
D: Marielle Heller (The Diary of a Teenage Girl).
S: Melissa McCarthy, Richard E. Grant, Dolly Wells, Jane Curtin.
Literary forgery shenanigans and loneliness. Melissa McCarthy and Richard E. Grant, playing to their strengths, are an engagingly unruly double act.
