Where did you watch this movie?

Marie Colvin, an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, is one of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time. After being hit by a grenade in Sri Lanka, she wears a distinctive eye patch and is still as comfortable sipping martinis with London's elite as she is confronting dictators. She sacrifices loving relationships, and over time, her personal life starts to unravel as the trauma she's witnessed takes its toll. Still, her mission to show the true cost of war leads her along with renowned war photographer Paul Conroy to begin the most dangerous assignment of their lives in the besieged Syrian city of Homs.
