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.
Based on the Flannan Isle mystery. A small relief boat approaches a tiny, isolated island where a Louise is located.They're too replenish the stocks and replace the crew of 3. After they dock no one greets them. The winch is broken. The lamps are clean and refilled; the table's laid for dinner. There's an upturned chair, 2 sets of yellow oilskins are missing... the 3 men have vanished.Written by
Four different lighthouses were used to create what is seen in the movie as a singular location: Mull of Galloway lighthouse was used for Exterior and interior cottages, lighthouse, lighthouse garden and the headland of the island. Killantrigan lighthouse was used for its interior staircase and side garden. Corsewall lighthouse was used for a single interior shot and to create the cliff for many of the cliff scenes. Cloch lighthouse was used for the interior lightroom as it is no longer operational, yet beautifully preserved. See more »

Initially intriguing but ultimately predictable
The first few acts are intriguing but it quickly becomes a long drawn out tale which has a few twists and turns along the way but ultimately the ending is disappointingly predictable.
For the last half hour of the movie it's obvious how it ends and in the final few minutes the movie seems to be taking another amazing twist and not ending predictably but sadly no.
All in all the acting is superb as is the direction ,it's just the writing at the end that lets it down.
It's a story that's been told before so that's what makes the ending predictable, which is a shame as it would have been a fine film otherwise for the formulaic ending.
If you're under 21 then the ending may well come as a surprise but then I doubt the film will appeal to anyone under the age of 30
