Rachel Weisz stars in “The Whistleblower,” an intensely powerful film about human trafficking in 1999-2000. The sex slave trade was alive and well in war-torn Bosnia, utilized and run by independent British contractors and United Nations peacekeepers, as well as local police and criminals. Rather than help people after the devastating Balkan wars, greedy men chose to exploit/abuse/torture/kill young women. The diplomats, aid workers, private contractors, and military personnel who paid for these slaves were just as guilty of inhumane acts as the suppliers and profiteers. “The Whistleblower,” based on true events and facts, is not for the faint of heart. It greatly angered me, as it should everyone.
Rating: 3.8 out of 5 stars.
