Mainstream director Edward Zwick tackles the political in this searing action-thriller set during Sierra Leone's bloody civil war. Leonardo DiCaprio plays an opportunist diamond smuggler who knows the jewels he hocks are fuelling the bitter and brutal conflict, but remains indifferent. Djimon Hounsou is a local fisherman, torn from his family and forced to work in the mines, and Jennifer Connelly is a journalist trying to get at the truth. The message isn't subtle and it shouldn't be. Hollywood lends its considerable clout to expose the deadly illegal trade of gems known, by those in the know, as 'blood diamonds'.
