War Story

Lee is a world-weary American woman who arrives in an Italian city. Her tangles with hotel staff, incessant smoking and her disregard of the persistently ringing telephone hint at her volatility brewing beneath the surface. Between fitful naps, she wanders the streets, snapping pictures of refugees as if her camera were both weapon and olive branch. Struggling to confront her demons, Lee resolves to help a beautiful young woman in need.

    Sombre, as befits the topic. Catherine Keener phenomenal as always. Really enjoyed how the scriptwriters allowed the backstory to develop gradually without ever abandoning the present. Strange that some critics seem to see this as a flaw.
