Saint Veronica

A slick remake of a barely­fictionalized biopic renders Irish reporter Guerin's story as Hollywood truth.

Veronica Guerin's mega-money producer Jerry Bruckheimer claims at the time of this writing that he hasn't even seen When the Sky Falls. Yeah, right. This from the man who shrugged at a recent Q & A: "If somebody would have told me that Pirates of the Caribbean -- a movie based on a Disney ride and starring Johnny Depp -- would have been the highest grossing action movie of the year so far, I would have said, you're out of your mind!'" Whoa, dude -- somebody open a window. Let's address the market and motivating factors. Why not just come right out and say: "Ireland sure is pretty; let's buy it."

Tough as nails: Cate Blanchett portrays a gutsy journalist in Veronica Guerin.

Rated R.

Since Veronica Guerin is about drugs, and movies are very potent drugs, it stands to reason: If you'd like to find a fully satisfying score, it is wise to learn as much as possible about your pusher.
