Zero Dark Thirty on Dec 13th

Kathryn Bigelow's latest war thriller is a riveting account of the hunt for Bin Laden which imagines a remorseless CIA agent battling dead ends.
We think we know about how Osama Bin Laden was killed, about the failed attempt in Tora Bora, and the manhunt that followed, the Seal team raid in Pakistan and the burial at sea.  But in unrelenting and intimate detail, Bigelow enriches and complicates the story, focusing on the intrepid CIA agents who led the hunt, the minor and major tragedies that made it take so long and the obsessions that made it possible.
 
Jessica Chastain plays Maya, the CIA agent, with incredible, coiled precision and she is the vital centre of this massive and wide reaching film.
