Veronica Guerin

Seven, noon, M ( 2003) Cate Blanchett dishes out what is ar­guably a ca­reer-best work ( and an­other flaw­less ac­cent) in this Jerry Bruck­heimer-pro­duced true-life story of the cru­sad­ing jour­nal­ist who doggedly set out to ex­pose Ire­land’s most no­to­ri­ous crime fig­ures. A tragic, gritty ex­pe­ri­ence, with a com­plex script that re­fuses to re­duce Veronica’s strug­gle to a sim­ple tale of good ver­sus evil. Solidly di­rected by vet­eran Joel Schu­macher – who once again proves the lesser the bud­get he is given, the bet­ter the out­come – this is a stir­ring saga of one woman’s ul­ti­mate sac­ri­fice.
