Veronica Guerin (2003)

Starring: Cate Blanchett, Gerard McSorley and Ciaran Hinds as John "The Coach" Traynor.
Synopsis: Based on a true story, this film is about Irish journalist Veronica Guerin (Cate Blanchett), a reporter for The Sunday Independent. Guerin exposed some of Dublin's most powerful crime barons and drug lords in 1996. Later that year, she was gunned down by assasins hired by the same criminal drug lords she exposed. Her legacy lives on. Ciaran Hinds at his best, in an Oscar worthy performance as John Traynor. Chilling and charming, Hinds portrays a man who thought the world revolved him and in a sense, this film revolves around Hinds. Traynor played both sides and always played for himself.
