Jessica Chastain burst onto the scene in 2011 with roles in The Help, The Debt, The Tree of Life, Take Shelter, and Coriolanus, earning an Oscar nomination for her performance in The Help. And in 2012, Chastain was seen on the big screen in Lawless and in the lead role in Zero Dark Thirty. Zero Dark Thirty is the gritty drama based on the 10 year manhunt for Osama bin Laden and features Chastain as a relentless, dedicated CIA agent who doggedly pursues tips that ultimately led to the location of bin Laden.

She also talks about how the film takes an unbiased, objective point of view and what audiences can expect when they take in a screening.
