Can she get the truth out before they get her? But what is the truth?
You are in the Matrix Neo.
Okay, so that’s not the truth (unless the machines have gotten to this post, in which case…). The world is normal, and the truth is what you see.
The truth, in relation to The Whistleblower, is that the UN covered up a sex scandal, and the ‘she’ is Kathryn Bolkovac, who just so happens to be the skank who revealed the truth. I say ‘skank’ because I assume she is. She IS a woman, after all. Bolkovac was a peacekeeper who ran an office that investigated sex trafficking, domestic abuse and sexual assault, or as it’s known in Canada, a first date. Anyways, Bolkovac discovers that some of the UN workers are visiting brothels and facilitating sex trafficking by forging documents and aiding the illegal transport of women into Bosnia. She’s fired (rightfully), but comes back to the US and files a wrongful termination suit, which she wins, though she alleges that she is still blacklisted. So now you know the whole story. Why see the film?
I’ll tell you why you should see the film! It was directed by Larysa Kondracki, that’s why! She’s… umm… the broad who directed Viko. Remember Viko? Yeah, me neither. Fine, there’s but two reasons to see this film. And each of those reasons has two reasons, so you could say four reasons. The two MAIN reasons are Monica Belluci and Rachel Weisz. The two reasons associated with each of them are their boobs. I know, it’s such a simple joke, and totally obvious, but I went there.
Also, I’m not joking. There’s some prime boob real estate there. I’m liking it.

Our Clever Prediction
This is an outside chance Oscar film. It’s being released a bit early to be a serious contender, but if it gets a few nominations, then it may make some money. I wouldn’t hold your breath though.
