Woody Harrelson, Academy Award winner Marisa Tomei (Best supporting Actress, My Cousin Vinny, 1993) and Stephen Dillane (The Hours) team up and deliver powerhouse performances in this courageous true story. Living on the edge amid the constant threat of attack, an offbeat band of TV journalists, led by hotshot Jimmy Flynn (Harrelson), report from a devastated war-torn country. The action intensifies when one of the journalists crosses the line and risks his life in a bold attempt to smuggle an orphaned girl to safety. Filling the screen with a jarring mix of passion and danger, Welcome to Sarajevo is a gritty, behind-the-scenes look at covering a war... head-on and on the run.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: However closely they mirror the real experience of Mr. Nicholson and others, some of the shocks here are too sadly predictable.
Fresh: Loosely structured, it keeps its focus despite lots of dramatic wiggle room.
Fresh: Messy and visceral, with an articulate, pointed anger that's recognizably British, "Welcome to Sarajevo" hits with an impact that's not diminished by the fact that Sarajevo's uneasy peace has held.
Fresh: A compelling but jumbled film that examines the line between journalistic detachment and passion.
