Blood Diamond

Nominated for five Academy Awards®, Blood Diamond traces the incredible journey of three people as they battle through harsh war torn West African landscape in search of a priceless pink diamond.

Starring four-time Academy Award® nominee, Leonardo DiCaprio (The Departed, The Aviator, Gangs of New York), two-time Academy Award® nominee, Djimon Hounsou (Constantine, Gladiator, In America) and Academy Award® winner, Jennifer Connelly (A Beautiful Mind, Little Children) this heart pounding adventure story takes viewers on an emotional and unforgettable ride. 

Mende fisherman, Soloman Vandy (Djimon Hounsou), has been taken from his family and forced to work in the diamond fields where he finds and hides a rare pink diamond.  If discovered, he knows he will be killed instantly, but it is worth the risk to save his family.  

Following a raid on the mine, Soloman is thrown in jail where his life becomes inextricably linked to Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio) - an ex-mercenary turned smuggler - who bails him out in order to gain the rare pink stone for himself. 

An emotional rollercoaster from start to finish, Danny Archer meets Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly), an American journalist who is working in Sierra Leone to uncover the true story behind 'conflict diamonds'. As Maddy's search for the truth deepens she finds herself drawn into the dangerous hunt which proves invaluable in helping the two men reach their goal. 

Directed by Edward Zwick (Glory, The Last Samurai), Blood Diamond's fast pace and gripping action will have audiences on the edge of their seats.
