Norway 2013

Details IMDB

Seen 23 April 2014

Ratings from other sources
IMDB 7.3/10

Rebecca is one of the world's top war photographers. She must weather a major emotional storm when her husband refuses to put up with her dangerous life any longer

My ratings 7.5/10

My impressions:

The war photographer is a special breed and in this case she is a mother and wife. Balancing those roles is not easy to say the least and her latest escapade from danger seems to have put some sense into her. Her family needs her despite her assurances that she knows what she is doing and capable of taking care of herself.

A trip with her daughter to s supposedly safe zone triggers an emotional flare up within the family. It is in her to use her talents and skills to bring attention to the plight of those oppressed. The family pull is strong too.

The choice has to be made. Even when doing her work, certain scenes are too heart wrenching for her to capture. How much more has to be done to stop the atrocities?
