Set against the backdrop of the chaos and civil war of 1990s Sierra Leone, “Blood Diamond” is the story of Danny Archer (Leonardo DiCaprio), an ex-mercenary, and Solomon Vandy (Djimon Hounsou), a simple fisherman. 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.
Enter Maddy Bowen (Jennifer Connelly), an idealistic American journalist who is in Sierra Leone to uncover the truth behind conflict diamonds, exposing the complicity of diamond industry leaders who have chosen profits over principles. With Maddy’s help, Archer and Solomon embark on a dangerous trek through rebel territory. Archer needs Solomon to find and recover the valuable diamond, but Solomon seeks something far more precious… his son.
Directed by Edward Zwick (“The Last Samurai”), the action drama “Blood Diamond” stars Leonardo DiCaprio (“The Departed”), Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly (“A Beautiful Mind”) and Djimon Hounsou (“Gladiator”).
