Jessica Chastain: Zero Dark Thirty Is Not What You Think


The events surrounding the killing of al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden gets a Hollywood twist in the new film "Zero Dark Thirty". Directed by Kathryn Bigelow it reconstructs the ten year manhunt for bin Laden through the eyes of a young CIA agent, Maya, portrayed by Jessica Chastain. The actress wasn't able to meet the person her character is based on because she is an active member of the CIA, so she relied on screenwriter Mark Boal.
