From producer Jerry Bruckheimer and starring Academy Award® nominee Cate Blanchett comes Veronica Guerin, the action-packed, critically acclaimed true story about the journalist who risked everything in search of the truth. In the mid-1990s, Dublin was nothing short of a war zone as the most powerful and dangerous drug lords battled for absolute control. But their most fearsome opponent wasn't the police. It was the courageous Veronica Guerin (Blanchett). Balancing home and family against her responsibility to her readers and country, she stopped at nothing to expose them. This suspense-filled and thrilling story will stun you with its power.
