I didn’t see Angelina Jolie’s last film In the Land of Blood and Honey but I haven’t heard too many nice things about it. Given that it was her first time directing you can’t always make an amazing film. I don’t know the story behind her new film Unbroken but the talent behind it has me intrigued. Written by the Coen Brothers and shot by Roger Deakins, a man who still hasn’t won an Oscar for his amazing work. This could either be a great film or a mediocre one but I don’t see it being a terrible one.
World War II hero Louis Zamperini, a former Olympic track star, survives a plane crash in the Pacific, spends 47 days drifting on a raft, and then more than two and a half years living in several Japanese prisoner of war camps.
