CHICAGO – “Drinking Buddies” director Joe Swanberg’s latest release of the same star wattage is “Happy Christmas,” an even lower-fi story than the Olivia Wilde beer comedy, steered even more by the casting that it was able to assemble. However, with this movie Swanberg doesn’t so much worry about having a story that could be confused with a more mainstream romantic comedy if it were to have a bigger budget.

Here is the plot description for “5 Days of War”:
Inspired by the real events of the swift but devastating five-day war between Russia and the Georgian Republic in 2008, this action-packed international thriller centers around a renegade American journalist (Rupert Friend) and his cameraman (Richard Coyle). They’re caught in the combat zone during the first Russian airstrikes against Georgia while filming in the border village of Viziana.
In rescuing Tatia (Emmanuelle Chriqui) – a young Georgian schoolteacher from the attack – the two reporters agree to help reunite her with her family when she loses them in the chaos in exchange for serving as their interpreter. As the three attempt to escape to safety, they witness and document the devastation from the full-scale crossfire and cold-blooded murder of innocent civilians.
While they desperately attempt to broadcast the footage while under attack from the Russian soldiers and mercenaries, they’re met with resistance from American and international networks either shorthanded from covering the Beijing Olympics or simply fatigued by war news. The trio realizes their survival is paramount so they can live to broadcast the truth.
This vivid, heart-pounding film directed by acclaimed director Renny Harlin (“Die Hard 2,” “The Long Kiss Goodnight,” “Cliffhanger”) sheds light on the complicated politics and dangers involved with exposing the truth during times of war. “5 Days of War” also features an international ensemble cast including Heather Graham, Johnathon Schaech, Rade Sherbedgia, Mikko Nousiainen and Andy Garcia with Val Kilmer.
