This Angelina Jolie directed, and Joel and Ethan Coen written film, depicts the life of a 1936 Olympian runner that endures brutal conditions in a Japanese prison camp. It seemed somewhat long, but did show how the human spirit survived impossible situations, without being "broken," and bitter.
The bonus feature on this DVD: The Real Louis Zamperini, is worthwhile and has an interview and footage with the Olympian Italian American, along with the director and author of the book.
I have not read the 2010 book by Laura Hillenbrand, 'Unbroken: A WW II Story of Survival, Resilience and Redemption' (three years on the New York Times Bestsellers List), nor the later young adult adaption; 'Unbroken: An Olympian Journey from Airman to Castaway to Captive.'
