Movie: Veronica Guerrin (2003)
Overall Rating: 4.5 / 5
General Impression: Such a powerful movie.
I don't just love this movie because Cate Blanchett manages to master yet another accent for another powerful story. It's such a heartbreaking story of the conditions of Ireland in the 90's and one woman who refuses to be intimidated by the task at hand. The ending isn't happy or sad: change does happen but only after the death of Vernoica.
Don't think that was a spoiler. The movie is based on a true story, the actual Veronica Guerrin and if you would Google the name you would quickly find out she is, tragically, dead.
Definitely worth a watch, and make sure you have a box of tissues handy.
