The Whistleblower DVD Review

The Whistleblower is a Heart-Pounding Suspense Thriller,
That is Available on Blu-ray and DVD January 24

How far will one woman go to fight global injustice? Clandestine secrets are waiting to be exposed in the gripping dramatic thriller THE WHISTLEBLOWER, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD January 24 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. Inspired by true events, THE WHISTLEBLOWER has been met with praise by critics and heralded at the Palm Springs International Film Festival (“Best Narrative Feature”), Seattle Film Festival (“Best Director”) and Whistler Film Festival (“Best Film,” “Best Narrative Feature”).

This is a film that  women should watch and pay attention to. It delivers a strong message of just how much gender roles have changed in many countries, and how far they have yet to come still, in others. 

The story follows a cop by the name Kathryn Bolkovac, that trades the standard "protect and serve" duties, for a more unconventional job with a security agency abroad. While in Bosnia (the setting for most of the movie), she finds that women are trafficked as sexual properties, and the parties responsible for this enjoy the protections of crooked politians. Kathryn Bolkovac (as portrayed by Rachel Weisz) takes a stand for these women, while trying to overcome the absurdly fiendish ringleaders that are in charge of the operation.

The way this character raises her voice for the silent and oppressed, should bring tears to the eyes of even the strongest willed women. There are ups and downs throughout the story, but it is very relate able and rings of hope and pride. A must watch for women if there ever was one.

Academy Award winners Rachel Weisz (The Constant Gardner) and Vanessa Redgrave (Julia) head a powerful cast that includes Oscar® Nominee David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck) in writer-director Larysa Kondracki’s harrowing dramatic thriller. When Nebraska cop Kathryn Bolkovac (Weisz) accepts a U.N. peacekeeper position in post-war Bosnia, she uncovers a deadly sex trafficking ring. After learning that fellow peacekeepers and military contractors are involved in the ghastly practice and its cover-up, Bolkovac risks her own life to save the lives of others and expose the corruption. With masterful acting and a heart-racing plot, THE WHISTLEBLOWER is an acclaimed film inspired by actual events and includes stellar supporting performances from Benedict Cumberbatch (“Sherlock”), Monica Bellucci (The Matrix Reloaded) and David Hewlett (“Stargate: Atlantis”).
