As an actress, Angelina Jolie has won numerous awards, including an Academy Award and three Golden Globes. She has also devoted her life to humanitarian work, gaining international recognition for her work on education, women’s rights, and advocacy for refugees. More recently, directing has become her passion. Jolie began writing and directing films in 2011 with In the Land of Bread and Honey.

Her 2014 movie, Unbroken, is the story of US Olympian Louis Zamperini, who survives on a raft for 47 days after his bomber crashes, and is then captured by the Japanese and sent to prisoner of war camps, where he endures years of torture and deprivation.

The film was a passion project for Jolie. “I felt, as a human being, I need to walk in this man’s footsteps,” she said in an interview in The Hollywood Reporter, “I wanted to understand what it is to become a better person and survive against these odds.” Unbroken grossed $163 million worldwide.
