What is A Private War about?

Marie Colvin (Rosamund Pike) is an American journalist for The Sunday Times, visiting the most dangerous countries and documenting their civil wars.
In 2001, while trekking with the Tamil Tigers, Colvin and her crew are ambushed by the Sri Lankan Army. Despite her attempt to surrender, an RPG fires in her direction, wounding her to the point that she loses her left eye. Afterwards, Colvin is forced to wear an eyepatch.
Diagnosed with PTSD, Colvin is still determined to look for new stories, and argues with her boss, Sean Ryan (Tom Hollander), about conflicts she wants to cover, including Iraq, where she meets war photographer Paul Conroy (Jamie Dornan), and Libya. She lives in London when not traveling the world, and begins a relationship with Tony Shaw (Stanley Tucci).
In February 2012, Conroy and Colvin decide to cover the conflict in the city of Homs, where they find 28,000 Syrian men, women, and children caught in the crossfire. After Conroy and Colvin send their story to Ryan, Colvin decides to appear on CNN to bring awareness to civilian casualties. As Marie, Paul, and another reporter, Rémi Ochlik, flee the building they had used as a media centre, the street is peppered with explosions. Paul, injured and shellshocked, wakes to find Colvin and Ochlik killed from the explosions and subsequent pile up of rubble. The movie ends with imagery of the devastated city of Homs, followed by an interview of the real Marie Colvin, with the quote: "You're never going to get to where you're going if you acknowledge fear."
The movie postscript reads: "Marie Colvin and journalist Remi Ochlik (Jérémie Laheurte) were killed in Homs, Syria, on February 22nd, 2012. Paul Conroy, despite being gravely injured, survives and continues to work as a photographer. Over 500,000 Syrian civilians have been killed since Colvin's death."
