A Mighty Heart

Based on a true story, A Mighty Heart follows the story of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl who travelled to Karachi with his pregnant wife Mariane, in pursuit of the truth. He was investigating a possible tie between “shoe bomber” Richard Reid and Sheikh Gilani, a Pakistani cleric who dabbled with radical Islamic groups in the past.

Unfortunately for Pearl, he was kidnapped and brutally murdered after being abducted by jihadists to to force the U.S. government to dictate on their terms which never happened. This interpretation of events follows the the five weeks leading up to Pearl's death and revolves around his wife Mariane and how she and the various governments of the world handled the situation. It is also based on the memoir she wrote of the experience in hopes that her son Adam, could get a feel for the great man his father was and how much people cared about him.

The movie has an almost documentary style of filmmaking behind it which keeps the tension and emotions high and is an extremely powerful piece of filmmaking, especially by Angelia Jolie herself who is remarkable as Mariane. She is almost barely unrecognizable as the sex siren that the media portrays and is easily her best performance to date. A Gripping movie directed by Michael Winterbottom with stellar acting performances.

Special Features:

  • A Journey of Passion - The Making of A Mighty Heart

  • Public Service Announcement - Pearl Foundation with Christiane Amanpour
