Three from Kathryn Bigelow
K-19: The Widowmaker · The Hurt Locker · Zero Dark Thirty

K-19: The Widowmaker (2002), Friday, February 8 – Reminiscent of such submarine dramas as Das Boot, a real-life historical incident became the basis for this military thriller. From director Kathryn Bigelow and starring Harrison Ford, Liam Neeson and Peter Sarsgaard, the film is about the first of many disasters that befell the nuclear Soviet missile submarine K-19 at the height of the Cold War. The screenplay was adapted by Christopher Kyle, based on a story written by Louis Nowra, based on real life events depicted in a book by Peter Huchthausen, and was internationally co-produced between the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Canada.

The Hurt Locker (2008), Friday, February 15 – Directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by Mark Boal, this war thriller stars Jeremy Renner, Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty, Christian Camargo, Ralph Fiennes, David Morse, and Guy Pearce. The film follows an Iraq War Explosive Ordinance Disposal team who are targeted by insurgents, and shows their psychological reactions to the stress of combat, which is intolerable to some and addictive to others. Boal drew on his experience during embedded access to write the screenplay. The Hurt Locker was nominated for nine Academy Awards and won six, including Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay, making it the first Best Picture winner by a female director; Bigelow also became the first female director to win Best Director.

Zero Dark Thirty (2012), Friday, February 22 – This political-thriller dramatizes what was billed as “the greatest manhunt in history,” the nearly decade-long international manhunt for al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden after the September 11 attacks. This search eventually leads to the discovery of his compound in Pakistan and the military raid that resulted in bin Laden’s death in 2011. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow and written by Mark Boal, and starring Jessica Chastain, Mark Strong, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, James Gandolfini and Kyle Chandler, the film received widespread critical acclaim and appeared on 95 critics’ top ten lists of 2012. It was nominated in five categories at the 85th Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Actress for Chastain, Best Original Screenplay, Best Film Editing, and Best Sound Editing. The film also earned Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Director, and Best Screenplay, with Chastain winning the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama.
