Blood Diamond [Movie Review]


Blood Diamond is a 2006 Edward Zwick-directed film set in war-torn 1990s Sierre Leone about a large and potentially life-changing diamond. As factions within the country fight over control of resources, the diamond industry exploits the turmoil by purchasing conflict diamonds. The precious stones have become especially coveted as they can be used to provide funding for purchasing weapons and other equipment. Solomon Vandy, a Mende fisherman, is separated from his family and forced to mine for diamonds after a group of rebels takes control of his village. When he finds a large uncut diamond, it offers a potential path for reconnecting with his family. But the diamond also attracts the attention of a warlord, a White South African diamond smuggler, an American journalist, and a host of others who all have their own plans for the diamond.
