Film - Unbroken (2014) Directed by Angelina Jolie
Olympian Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) trades feats of athleticism for military service during World War II. After a near-fatal plane crash, Louie floats in a lifeboat for forty-seven days, but his fight for survival is not over yet. Louie is caught by the Japanese navy and sent to a prisoner of war camp, where he comes head to head with an especially cruel commander known as “the Bird” (Miyavi). The Bird singles Louie out for his athleticism and puts him through a series of soul-crushing physical challenges. Based on the 2010 book by Laura Hillenbrand, this film continues our series of films based on books.
