Zero Dark Thirty (2012)

This movie is a chronicle of the ten year long hunt for al-Qaeda terrorist leader Osama bin Laden after the September 2001 attacks until he was killed by Navy S.E.A.L. Team 6 in May, 2011. This was an action, drama, history, thriller based on true events. The movie’s plot centered around Maya, played by an exacting Jessica Chastain, who joins the effort to catch Osama bin Laden and curb the terrorist attacks of al-Qaeda. She was obsessed with his capture and it was through her efforts that the intelligence was discovered that they were pretty sure they found Osama’s location. The film started with some pretty tough interrogation scenes where the CIA was trying to break down people to get information on the terrorists. I eas a little surprised that the President ordered the raid with most of the intelligence community thought that there was only a 60% chance Osama was in the compound.  Maya was the only one who was 100% sure and she was right.
