This “based on true events” film stars Angelina Jolie as the wife of Jewish journalist Daniel Pearl, who disappeared and popped up on a terrorist hostage video somewhere “over there.” Jolie is heart-wrenching as the soon to be bursting pregnant wife and Dan Futterman is effective as Daniel. Michael Winterbottom (THE ROAD TO GUANTANAMO, IN THIS WORLD) brings a documentary-esque quality to his direction, lending this an immediacy – even for those who know the outcome.
