Making the Grades

Release Date: 5 August 2011 (Limited)

Because we only review G, PG, and PG-13 movies at Parent Previews we did not review this title. For your convenience, we have provided some brief information about the film’s synopsis and content.

Synopsis:

Based on the experiences of United Nations peacekeeper Kathryn Bolkovac (played by Rachel Weisz), The Whistleblower recounts her experiences in Bosnia. Originally sent to investigate human trafficking allegations, the former police officer becomes alarmed when she discovers many of the perpetrators of the sex crimes are her co-workers.

Discussion Ideas After The Movie

Teaching ideas and topics to discuss about The Whistleblower.

The real Kathryn Bolkovac runs a webpage.

Both the American LA Times and The UK Guardian have published articles about her allegations and subsequent job loss.

She has also written a book about her experiences, which inspired this movie’s script.
