Germany German (Deutsch)

Ein mutiger Weg

Am 23. Januar 2002 wird der Asien-Chefkorrespondent des Wall Street Journal, Daniel Pearl (Dan Futterman), der nach dem 11. September aus der Krisenregion Pakistan berichtet, von Al-Qaida-Terroristen in Karatschi entführt. Als seine schwangere Frau Mariane (Angelina Jolie) davon erfährt, versucht sie erschüttert alles in ihrer Macht stehende zu tun, um ihn freizubekommen. Diplomatenunterhändler Randall Bennett (Will Patton) steht ihr vor Ort bei, wo sie schwere Rückschläge hinnehmen muss und den Tod ihres Mannes nicht verhindern kann. Basierend auf Mariane Pearls Memoiren dringt Michael Winterbottom nach In This World und Road to Guantanamo ein drittes Mal nach Pakistan vor. Trotz Hollywoodstar Jolie behält er abermals den Stil eines authentischen und sehr bewegenden Dokudramas bei.

Dal pressbook del film: "All'attenzione dei giornalisti: al fine di preservare il piacere del pubblico vi saremmo riconoscenti se non rivelaste nulla della trama e dello sviluppo dei personaggi." Cerchiamo di rispettare questa richiesta non rinunciando a parlare del film. Tom Stall è il proprietario di un piccolo ristorante in una cittadina di provincia. Conduce una vita normale con la moglie e i figli fin quando un giorno si difende dall'aggressione di due feroci criminali uccidendo entrambi. La sua immagine finisce su tutti i media e spinge Carl Fogarty, un boss della mafia irlandese di Philadelpia ad andarlo a cercare. L'uomo è sicuro di aver riconosciuto in lui un delinquente che lo ha privato di un occhio e che era molto temuto nell'ambiente per la sua crudeltà. Tom deve difendere la sua famiglia.
