Wow Angelina Jolie brought to her Knees for True Story of Christian Zamperini in Amazing New Movie - Unbroken - SHARE

 Actress-and-director Angelina Jolie said in the past (2000), “There doesn’t need to be a God for me.” But recently Angelina she had a change of heart while directing the film 'Unbroken,' a story about the life of WWII hero, Olympic athlete, and devout Christian Louis Zamperini. Angelina spent time with Louis discussing his faith in Jesus Christ. Angelina needed the sun to shine shoot the very last scene of the movie, but the rain would not stop. Louis Zamperini’s daughter, Cynthia said, “She [Angelina] was not a person of faith and had never prayed before, but she found herself at the very last scene of the movie ... they needed sunlight to shoot this very important scene and there had been a storm that had been going for a while. Angelina said, 'I don't know what I'm going to do so I'll do what Louie would do.' She got on her knees and she prayed for a miracle … everybody saw it … It stopped raining. The sun came out, a rainbow came out, she said, 'let's get this take' and they shot the take. When she said 'cut,' it started to rain again.” . When Angelina heard that Louis Zamperini was on his death bed she rushed to the hospital. Sadly, she did not make it before the hero passed. But when she saw Louis’ family she “pointed above saying ‘I know he’s with us, I know he’s there with God.’” Based on the incredible true story. Unbroken arrives in theaters on Christmas Day, 2014. Description Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken, an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp. Adapted from Laura Hillenbrand’s (“Seabiscuit: An American Legend”) enormously popular book, Unbroken brings to the big screen Zamperini’s unbelievable and inspiring true story about the resilient power of the human spirit. Starring alongside O’Connell are Domhnall Gleeson and Finn Wittrock as Phil and Mac—the airmen with whom Zamperini endured perilous weeks adrift in the open Pacific—Garrett Hedlund and John Magaro as fellow POWs who find an unexpected camaraderie during their internment, Alex Russell as Zamperini’s brother, Pete, and in his English-language feature debut, Japanese actor Miyavi as the brutal camp guard known only to the men as “The Bird.” The film is produced by Jolie, as well as Matthew Baer (City by the Sea), Erwin Stoff (The Day the Earth Stood Still) and Clayton Townsend (This Is 40). Leading the accomplished behind-the-scenes crew is 11-time Oscar®-nominated cinematographer Roger Deakins (Skyfall).

Unbroken arrives in theaters on Christmas Day, 2014.
