eOne Films: Rachel Weisz in the Whistleblower - Canadian Release August 12

From a media release - about a film with two of my favourite actors:

eOne Films presents
A Film by Larysa Kondracki

• Film opens in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal on Friday, August 12, 2011 & in Ottawa on August 26, 2011

*World Premiere at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival
*WON Audience Award at the 2010 Palm Spring International Film Festival

Co-Canadian Production
The film stars Rachel Weisz, Monica Bellucci, Academy Award nominee David Strathairn and Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave

Based on a true story, Kathy Bolkovac (Academy Award-winner Rachel Weisz) is a Nebraskan police officer who takes a job working for the United Nations as a peacekeeper in post-war Bosnia.

Her expectations of helping to rebuild a devastated country are dashed when she unveils a different reality: corruption and cover-up amidst a world of the United Nation contingents, private contractors, and diplomatic doubletalk.

This story deals with a truth that most would find hard to believe: the scandal of cover-up of corruption and crimes against humanity.

Running time: 100 minutes
