Unbroken, a film by Angelina Jolie

Unbroken, a film directed by Angelina Jolie, based on the book by the same title by Laura Hillenbrand.

If you have read my book review (earlier post) you well know the story of Louis Zamperini.

It was interesting to see how the film developed - I had wondered how it would flow from page to film.  This film was so intense, masterfully adapted and hard to take one's eyes away from the screen.  

How Louis survived all the beatings that "The Bird" inflicted upon him is just unbelievable.

Yet, another film that surpassed this year's Oscar winner.

Not for the faint of heart or young children - just due to the awfulness of the violence of war.- yet well worth watching.
