Overview
Inspired by the real events of the swift — but devastating — five-day war between Russia and Georgia in 2008. 5 Days of War follows an American journalist (Rupert Friend) and his cameraman (Richard Coyle) caught in the combat zone during the first Russian airstrikes against Georgia. Rescuing Tatia (Emmanuelle Chriqui), a young Georgian schoolteacher from the attack, the two reporters agree to help find her family. As the three attempt to escape to safety, they witness and document the devastation from full-scale crossfire and cold-blooded murder of innocent civilians. They desperately attempt to broadcast the footage they've captured while under attack but are met with resistance from networks shorthanded from covering the Beijing Olympics. The trio realizes their survival is paramount, so they can live to broadcast the truth. This heart-pounding film, directed by acclaimed director Renny Harlin sheds light on the complicated politics and dangers involved with exposing the truth during times of war.
