On January 23, 2002, Mariane Pearl’s world changed forever. Her husband Daniel, the South Asia Bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal, was researching a story on shoe bomber Richard Reid. The story drew them to Karachi where a go-between had promised access to an elusive source. As Danny left for the meeting, he told Mariane he might be late for dinner. He never returned.

In the face of death, Danny’s spirit of defiance and his unflinching belief in the power of journalism led Mariane to write about his disappearance, the intense effort to find him and his eventual murderer in her memoir.

Member Reviews

  • A very moving and sad true story very well made into this movie. As great the cast and performances were, what I got from this was how remarkable the real life people were.

  • One of my least favourite Winterbottom movies. Well made but a bit confusing and I was not convinced by Angelina Jolie's performance. Worth watching though.

  • Boring

  • Disk faulty and sound difficult to hear. However, what I saw in the fist half was interesting.

  • Four big stars.
