'The Whistleblower' is a movie about people who stand up for what is right, without simplifying or exaggerating the true events that inspired the script. Rachel Weisz plays Kathy, a police officer from Nebraska who goes to Bosnia after the end of the war on a peace mission.

The story of the movie has no happy end and relies on dramatic facts that had an enormous impact on the lives of women trafficked into Bosnia. 'The Whistleblower' will be released Friday, August 5 and it is sure to move people through the message it sends out. Rachel Weisz's contribution is her talent and ability to transcend the screen and tell a story to each and every one of us. A sad story this time, as it deals with crime and violation of human rights.

Critics have already started to laude Weisz's performance. One of them, Michael Rechtshaffen from The Hollywood Reporter calls Rachel's acting 'a bracing, wholly connected performance as the real-life Kathryn Bolkovac'.

In 'The Whistleblower', Weisz is lucky to play a heroic character based on an actual person, Kathryn Bolkovac. 'If you ask Kathy why she did what she did, she didn't think she was saving the world or going to get a movie made about her, she literally said 'I was doing my job, I was investigating crime'. And she didn't think she was doing anything special. I was talking to someone earlier today and they said yeah, that's often what war heroes say...There's something so moving and extraordinary about that, I think that's drama at its most interesting', the Oscar-winning actress said for Huffington Post.
