THE death of Ir­ish jour­nal­ist Lyra McKee in April this year re­minded me to re­visit this bril­liant biopic from 2003, star­ring Cate Blanchett (pictured). Film critic Leigh Paatsch had this to say about it back then: “Veron­ica Guerin is dis­arm­ingly upfront about what fate has in store for its ti­tle char­ac­ter. In­deed, the film ca­su­ally be­gins with the drive-by as­sas­si­na­tion of Guerin be­fore swiftly back­track­ing some two years.”
