  • The Zookeeper's Wife (PG-13)

    Kathryn Bigelow follows her Oscar-winning The Hurt Locker with this gripping account of the search for Osama bin Laden, focusing on bureaucratic infighting at the CIA as the political winds shift and new intelligence brings Seal Team Six to bin Laden's door. more...
