In case you haven’t heard, Angelina Jolie has tried a hand at helming a war film and apparently, she has done quite well, we hear! In fact, according to TIME, Universal Pictures expects the movie to gross approximately USD17 million to USD19 million at the box office by the end of the Christmas weekend.

“Unbroken” is a 2014 American war drama film, produced and directed by Angelina Jolie, and based on the 2010 non-fiction book by Laura Hillenbrand, “Unbroken: A World War II Story of Survival, Resilience, and Redemption”. The film revolves around the life of USA Olympian and athlete Louis “Louie” Zamperini, portrayed by Jack O’Connell.



As a boy, Louis “Louie” Zamperini is always in trouble, but with the help of his older brother, he turns his life around and channels his energy into running, later qualifying for the 1936 Olympics. When World War II breaks out, Louie enlists in the military. After his plane crashes in the Pacific, he survives an incredible 47 days adrift in a raft, until his capture by the Japanese navy. Sent to a POW (prisoner of war) camp, Louie becomes the favourite target of a particularly cruel prison commander. And “Unbroken” is his true story.
