Veronica Guerin

So uplifting and yet so heartbreaking. Thank God for men and women who stands in courage for what is right.

 
The Movie:
Real-life story of an assassinated Irish journalist in the dramatic thriller Veronica Guerin. Cate Blanchett appears as the title character, a relentless crime reporter for The Sunday Independent during the early '90s.
Guerin's violent murder in 1996 led to a revision of Ireland's laws and the creation of the Criminal Assets Bureau.

The movie picks up with her pursuit of the underground drug trade in Dublin, which she suspects is led by mobster Martin "The General" Cahill (Gerry O'Brien). When Cahill's gang is attacked, she suspects mobster Gerry "The Monk" Hutch (Alan Devine) is responsible.

Not deterred by threats or gunshot wounds, she uses thug John Traynor (CiarĂ¡n Hinds) as an informer to help out her investigation of psychotic mobster John Gilligan (Gerard McSorley).
