Oscar release: Zero Dark Thirty
Kathryn Bigelow's much-talked-about film Zero Dark Thirty is not only an Oscar nominee but has also won a lot of acclaim from critics for its hardline plot.
Zero Dark Thirty is a chronicle of the decade-long hunt for al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after the September 2001 attacks, and his death at the hands of the Navy S.E.A.L. Team 6 in May 2011.
Interestingly, the film seems to portray that the face behind one of the biggest missions of the century was that of a woman.
Jessica Chastain plays the protagonist Maya. The actress has already won the Golden Globe for Best Actress and has also been nominated in the same category for the Oscar.
Zero Dark Thirty has been nominated for 5 Academy awards, including Best Picture.
The film's director Katheryn Bigelow recently made headlines for the royal snub she got for the Best Director Oscar.
The film is high on action and thrills complete with tons of weapons, helicopters and the works.
