One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.
Early 1970s. Four strangers check in at the El Royale Hotel. The hotel is deserted, staffed by a single desk clerk. Some of the new guests' reasons for being there are less than innocent and some are not who they appear to be.

In the wedding scene, someone places an ottoman in front of Hervé (Peter Dinklage) so that he can step up to kiss his bride. This is a direct reversal of what happens to Dinklage in the Game of Thrones episode "Second Sons", in which Joffrey removes a stepladder from the altar just before the marital vows, to humiliate him by making it impossible for him to kiss his bride.

The song "Everything Zen" by English rock band Bush is featured in the strip club scene that takes place in August 1993. The song first appeared on their debut album "Sixteen Stone", which was released in December 1994, and was not released as a single until late January 1995. See more »
I got sucked right into this flick on HBO; the era (my teens), the music, the reconstruction of timeless scenes and TV personalities were spot on. But Mr. Dinklage is excellent, surpassing expectations and delivering a huge gift to the entertainment universe. The story was well-told by framing a range of 'out-of-control' personal worlds, while harvesting gut wrenching observations about being alive, being a person, being flawed, being human. Dinklage bravely fills-in that void between "you" and "him" with honesty, authenticity and structure. Great performance. It changed me...honestly! I feel like a better person... wow.
