Rupert Friend lives to see another day--for now--in 5 Days of War.
Based on true events, the action-filled movie 5 Days of War tells the story of a group of people caught behind enemy lines during 2008’s devastating five-day war between Russia and the Georgia Republic.
Directed by Renny Harlin (The Long Kiss Goodnight), the film centers around an American journalist (Rupert Friend, The Young Victoria) and his cameraman (Richard Coyle, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time) as they are caught in the combat zone during the first Russian air strikes against Georgia. Rescuing Georgian schoolteacher Tatia (Emmanuelle Chriqui, Women in Trouble) from the attack, the two reporters agree to help reunite her with her family in exchange for serving as their interpreter. As the three attempt to escape to safety, they witness — and document — the devastation from the full-scale crossfire and cold-blooded murder of innocent civilians.
