Bleak but compelling, believable and well acted.

I think this film deserves more than the stars it has accrued. I believe this score is just due to lack of reviews (by anyone with a brain...ha ha) . It's VERY Bleak but compelling, believable and well acted. This film is looks beautiful and the musical score is gorgeous. Catherine Keener is brilliantly cast in the role of this wasted woman who still has the tenacity to try. Light Saturday night movie with popcorn this is not. From the title you might think there will be conflict and violence but you'll be disappointed if that's what you are looking for. This film is dramatic and poignant and very thought provoking. The themes of post traumatic stress, depression and friendship were very well portrayed for me.

Major Schnooze-fest...

One of my favorite actresses, Catherine Keener, stars as a war photographer who recently endured a brutal detainment in Libya who holes up in Sicily to come to terms with her ordeal. All this happens not far from the home of her former lover and mentor (Ben Kingsley). Soon she crosses paths with a Tunisian migrant in need of an abortion and safe passage to France, who bears a striking resemblance to a Libyan girl she photographed just before her capture.

As much as I wanted to like this film, I just was booooorrrrd outta my gord up in here! Like I said, Catherine is one of my all-time favs, but her performance wasn't enough to save this schnooze-fest. Good performances all around, just needed a little more in the way of storyline I'd say-?? Marginal thumbs down...

Not everyone's cup of tea but a good film to reflect on

I expected an entirely different film when I decided to watch War Story, but I feel some of the reviews have been a little unfair. This film's biggest flaw is being wrongfully advertised as a thriller, as it is very slow-paced and it can easily bore an audience, specially when they're not prepared to sit through 90 minutes of long scenes of the lead character reflecting on her traumas, life, death, etc. But this is all intentional and I believe well justified in the end, War Story's highlights are the beautiful music score (Which I'll admit was the reason I watched in the first place), a brilliant performance by Catherine Keener, and her ability to carry a film with not much dialogue but a lot of visual references, you can really see and feel Lee's pain and her suffering in some of the most subtle body language and expressions, and her frustration too. If you are expecting a violent, brutal, thriller you'll be disappointed, but as a slow-paced, believable and grievous drama that feels accurately portrayed and believable, you will appreciate it and by the end of the film you'll be left with a sense of full-circle closure.
