Nothing is More Dangerous Than the Truth.
When Nebraska cop Kathryn Bolkovac (Weisz) accepts a U.N. peacekeeper position in post-war Bosnia, she uncovers a deadly sex trafficking ring. After learning that fellow peacekeepers and military contractors are involved in the ghastly practice and its cover-up, Bolkovac risks her own life to save the lives of others and expose the corruption.

"A grisly, authentic, meticulously researched, pulse-quickening political chiller about a hot-button topic that will keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.  Rex Reed, New York Observer

Editor's Note
Inspired by real events, writer/director Larysa Kondracki's intense docudrama tells the tale of an American policewoman who uncovers evidence of human trafficking while assisting a U.N. peacekeeping mission in Bosnia. Nebraska cop Kathy Bolkovac (Rachel Weisz) is caught in the middle of a vicious custody battle with her ex-husband when she seizes the opportunity to make a quick 100,000 dollars tax-free by spending six months in Bosnia as a U.N. peacekeeper. Shortly after Kathy arrives in Bosnia, Human Rights Commission head Madeleine Rees (Vanessa Redgrave) promotes her to the U.N.'s Gender Office, where she begins studying sexual-assault cases. But when Kathy discovers that her fellow peacekeepers are involved in a human-trafficking ring, the ensuing controversy makes her the target of some very powerful -- and incredibly ruthless -- people.

Professional Reviews

Box Office
3 stars out of 5 -- "Severe and unflinching, THE WHISTLEBLOWER relies on journalistic realism to pack its punch." 07/05/2011

Chicago Sun-Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The movie, constructed as a relentless and frightening thriller, stars Rachel Weisz in one of her best performances..." 08/10/2011

Movieline
"It's a gritty, often unsettling piece of work....It's Weisz's face that provides the best window into the movie's motives and intentions." 08/04/2011

Entertainment Weekly
"THE WHISTLEBLOWER succeeds....It's staged with an understatement that's rooted in the muddy squalor of reality." -- Grade: B 07/29/2011

Chicago Sun-Times 8 of 10
For 20 years the news has reported from time to time of crimes alleged by employees of paid defense contractors. These cases rarely seem to result in change, and the stories continue. We can only guess what may be going unreported. The Whistleblower offers chilling evidence of why that seems to be so. - Roger Ebert
