Today we have two new poster for The Whistleblower, a political thriller in which Rachel Weisz plays a Nebraska cop working as a peacekeeper in postwar Bosnia who uncovers a sex scandal.
Here’s the official synopsis for “The Whistleblower”:
Kathryn Bolkovac is a Nebraska cop who is thrust into the gravelly snake pit of UN regulated Bosnia. She works as part of a private corporate army, training Bosnian police to restore order to the war-torn country. As she begins to get the lay of the land in her new environment, she starts to see signs of a terrible underground industry whose patrons are not only from within the corporation but from within the United Nations as well.
After finding a woman who has escaped from a human trafficker selling sex slaves to hidden brothels in the area, Kathryn begins to see how expansive an industry it has become in the years following the war. As she gathers more and more evidence to bring to light she discovers the last thing she ever expected, that there is no way for the corporate army and UN officers to be held accountable for their actions. Based on the harrowing true story of a single womans quest for justice in the face of a truth no one wanted to expose and organizations facilitating the very crimes they were created to stop. But is one woman enough to go up against the United Nations and its corporate conspirators?
The film is directed by Larysa Kondracki. Joining Rachel Weisz in the cast ensemble are Monica Bellucci, Vanessa Redgrave, David Strathairn, David Hewlett, Liam Cunningham, Benedict Cumberbatch, and Jeanette Hain.
The Whistleblower comes to theaters August 5th, 2011. [source: IMPAwards]
