UNBROKEN This epic film is the dramatic, inspiring and action-filled true life story of Louie Zamperini, a gold medal Olympian and World War II hero. After being shot down over the Pacific, he and two other crewmen survived in a raft for 47 days — only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a brutal prisoner-of-war camp. More than a story of a man, "Unbroken" brings to the big screen Zamperini's unbelievable and inspiring story of the resilient power of the human spirit. The film was adapted from Laura Hillenbrand's ("Seabiscuit: An American Legend") best-selling book.
