Zero Dark Thirty
Event Info: (847) 272-6224 northbrook.info
Dir. Kathryn Bigelow. 2012. 2hrs 37mins. With the single-mindedness of The Hurt Locker’s bomb defuser, Jessica Chastain’s CIA analyst spends eight years hunting Osama bin Laden. The film doesn’t shy from torture or other horrors; the Abbottabad raid reaffirms that no one directs action like Bigelow. Call ahead before arrival; the library has not confirmed the screening as of press date.
