Blood Diamond ~ 2006

16 Mar

Starring Academy Award nominee Leonardo DiCaprio, Academy Award winning Jennifer Connelly & Djimon Hounsou, along with Michael Sheen, Arnold Vosloo, Basil Wallace, Ntare Mwine, Caruso Kuypers, and David Harewood
Set against the backdrop of the chaos and civil war that enveloped 1990s Sierra Leone, Blood Diamond is the story of Danny Archer (DiCaprio), an ex-mercenary from Zimbabwe, and Solomon Vandy (Hounsou), a Mende fisherman. Both men are African, but their histories and their circumstances are as different as any can be until their fates become joined in a common quest to recover a rare pink diamond, the kind of stone that can transform a life… or end it. Hounsou was par excellence in this film and should have walked away with an Oscar. DiCaprio was good in this film as well, but much better in The Departed. B
