We have not seen Rachel Weisz in a film for a while. I think the last project I saw her in was Agora, which did not get much of a release. In The Whistleblower, Weisz plays a police officer who goes to Bosnia with high hopes only to have them dashed by rampant corruption and crime. Vanessa Redgrave, Monica Bellucci, and David Strathairn also star along Weisz. Official Synopsis:
Inspired by actual events, Kathy (Academy Award(R) winner Rachel Weisz) is an American police officer who takes a job working as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia. Her expectations of helping to rebuild a devastated country are dashed when she uncovers a dangerous reality of corruption, cover-up and intrigue amid a world of private contractors and multinational diplomatic doubletalk. Directed by first time filmmaker Larysa Kondracki, the film also stars Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave, Monica Bellucci and Academy Award nominee David Strathairn.
The Whistleblower is in theatres August 5, 2011.
