Aro Recommended Mighty Heart, A


USA 2007, 104 minutes
Dir. Michael Winterbottom
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama / History, Hostages & Terrorism


Aroview: Michael Winterbottom's sober, well-acted docudrama covering the 2002 abduction of Wall Street Journal reporter Danny Pearl by Pakistani jihaddists and his wife Marianne's (Jolie) efforts to find him before he is executed.

A tense, claustrophobic thriller that works despite the events being so notorious, and is drawn out by Winterbottom’s objective, restrained direction. A brutal, visceral evocation of a real-life nightmare, Jolie’s passionate performance only adds to the tragedy.
