Veronica Guerin is one of the best movies I have ever seen. I just happen on it in a Walmart and bought it because it sounded very inte resting and because of the all star cast with the beautiful and very talented actress Cate Blanchett. And such a brutal and sad story. She sees so many young people hooked on drugs in Ireland, and feels the need to bring the tragedy into the open by reporting it. But it brings her in harms way with the Irish mob, which eventually leads to her assasination, within a two year time span. And a very brutal murder. This is a very good movie with great actors including Ciar\'an Hinds, Gerard McSorely and directed by the man behind Lost Boys Joel Schumacher, one of my favorite vampire movies. See Veronica Guerin.....it is a movie that will really move you, and Cate is wonderful in it. And warning, it will piss you off.
