The story evolves around a female cop from Nebraska who serves as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia and exposes a United Nations cover-up. besides Rachel Weisz the Whistleblower movie is also starring Vanessa Redgrave, Monica Bellucci and David Strathairn. The film should be released in August 2011.
Let's watch the first movie trailer of the Whistleblower thanks to the site Trailer Spy:
"Kathryn Bolkovac is a Nebraska cop who is thrust into the gravelly snake pit of UN regulated Bosnia. She works as part of a private corporate army, training Bosnian police to restore order to the war-torn country. As she begins to get the lay of the land in her new environment, she starts to see signs of a terrible underground industry whose patrons are not only from within the corporation but from within the United Nations as well. After finding a woman who has escaped from a human trafficker selling sex slaves to hidden brothels in the area, Kathryn begins to see how expansive an industry it has become in the years following the war. As she gathers more and more evidence to bring to light she discovers the last thing she ever expected, that there is no way for the corporate army and UN officers to be held accountable for their actions. Based on the harrowing true story of a single woman's quest for justice in the face of a truth no one wanted to expose and organizations facilitating the very crimes they were created to stop. But is one woman enough to go up against the United Nations and its corporate conspirators?"
The Whistleblower movie is based on a true story. So I understand why they chose the talented Rachel Weisz: we definitely need such a talented actress for this kind of sensitive lead role. She's a fantastic actress and knows how to deliver. So I'm confident that the Whistleblower will be worth watching.
