Excellent film based on true story of a heroic journalist
- Veronica Guerin review by CP Customer
Cate Blanchett is absolutely superb as feisty, dogmatic Irish journalist, Veronica Guerin. Successful, but unpopular with the 'literary set' in Dublin, she sets out to expose the drug barons who seem to be taking over the city. She is full of life and a committed wife and mother, as well as a conscientious political journalist. Threats and physical attacks make her even more determined and she unites the community to rid itself of the pushers and dealers. The character of Veronica is strong and courageous and you can't help but be full of admiration for what she did. Poignant, touching and very well written.
