Product description

Product Description

This ripped-from-the-headlines thriller is inspired by actual events. Kathy Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz) is a Nebraskan 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.

-----

La dénonciation racontera les tribulations d’une policière du Nebraska qui a risqué son travail et sa propre sécurité en levant le voile sur un scandale impliquant à la fois des entrepreneurs américains et l’ONU.

Rachel Weisz delivers a stunning, riveting performance in The Whistleblower, a performance that shows what depth and emotion she is capable of. Her portrayal, and the message of The Whistleblower, will stay with the viewer long after the movie is over. Based on a true story, the film shines a light on two horrific stories--the brutality of human trafficking, and the lengths to which those in power go to protect the status quo, even if (or especially if) the result is continuing the trafficking. Weisz plays Kathy, an American police officer who signs up for a contract in Bosnia working for the United Nations as a postwar peacekeeper. But what Kathy discovers is human trafficking and sex slavery on a gross scale--and yet her efforts to help the affected young women to safety, and to bring the traffickers to justice, seem to be thwarted at every turn. Kathy is warned, repeatedly and viciously, to leave the issue alone, but she is determined that the United Nations do the right thing. Yet bureaucrats on the ground--and possibly even in the UN itself--seem to be part of a conspiracy to look the other way.

The viewer is taken along for a brutal, frustrating, and sometimes horrifying ride. Weisz absolutely carries this difficult film, and her nuanced performance keeps the viewer riveted, even if the subject matter is often grim. The rest of the cast is also terrific. Vanessa Redgrave is a tireless worker trying to help the young women through a nonprofit organization, facing much resistance. David Strathairn plays an American who seems to want to help Kathy expose the conspiracy, but he also may be tied too deeply to the power structure. And Monica Bellucci plays against type as a steely-cold UN administrator whose allegiances are clearly to the establishment in the savaged country. The Whistleblower is not an easy film to watch, but it's an important one, and the cast and writer-director Larysa Kondracki have brought a light onto an important subject, and one brave woman who dared to take a stand. --A.T.
