The search for Osama Bin Laden gets underway in riveting, fact-based thriller Zero Dark Thirty.
Director of The Hurt Locker Kathryn Bigelow follows her Oscar-winning success with this dramatization of the world's greatest manhunt. On 2 May 2011, al-Qaeda leader bin Laden was tracked down and killed at a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Bigelow and writer-producer Mark Boal (who wrote the Oscar-winning script for The Hurt Locker) rewind the clock and examine the events that led to his discovery and death. The decade-long operation involved a top-secret team of intelligence and military operatives, all of whom dedicated themselves to a single goal: track down and eliminate the world's most wanted man. A superb cast including Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton and Mark Strong puts a human face on this extraordinary story whilst Bigelow hones her signature blend of gripping tension, visceral set pieces and political intelligence, immersing audiences in the realities of modern warfare.
