SIFF Sighting: THE WHISTLEBLOWER (Thriller; Canada)
In the late 90s, U.S. cop Kathryn Bolkovac went to Bosnia to be a human rights investigator.
She uncovered a sex trafficking operation involving many of her peers, which the U.N. was covering up. She was fired for reporting the scandal.
The Whistleblower details this true story with a strong Rachel Weisz as Kathryn, accented with heartbreaking performances from the supporting cast.
It's a solid film, but it takes a while for the pace to gain momentum.
The Whistleblower screened at The 37th Annual Seattle International Film Festival.
