This movie is based on the true and tragic story of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl. When his wife Mariane (Angelina Jolie) discovers Daniel (Dan Futterman) has been captured by a terrorist group, the pregnant woman remains stoically optimistic while Pakistani police, FBI agents and government officials investigate the international incident.

Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in A Mighty Heart...

Carefully chronicling the events leading up to the brutal murder of reporter Daniel Pearl by Islamic extremists, this film is not suitable for children. The ongoing situation creates a continual sense of peril and tension, yet the film depicts very little explicit violence. Men are portrayed hanging by their wrists and being interrogated, while presumably naked (shown from the waist up). In another scene, men fire shots during the capture of a suspect. Multiple sexual expletives are heard, along with some other profanities. A brief shot shows a married couple embracing in bed—bare backs and shoulders are seen. Some secondary characters smoke and drink.
