Rosamund Pike’s genius for fusing glamour with intrigue has seen her play a duplicitous MI6 agent (Die Another Day, 2002), an imperilled attorney (Jack Reacher, 2012), and a scheming fugitive (Gone Girl 2014) for which she received a BAFTA nomination. Rosamund’s forthcoming portrayal of doomed war correspondent Marie Colvin (A Private War, February 2019) chimes with her selection here of controversial man-hunt drama Zero Dark Thirty (2012).
The first female director to ever win the BAFTA for Best Director (The Hurt Locker 2008), Kathryn Bigelow followed it up with Zero Dark Thirty, a tense thriller dramatizing the decade-long search for Al Quaeda supremo Osama bin Laden. Reprising her collaboration with screenwriter Mark Boal, Bigelow casts Jessica Chastain as ‘Maya’, a CIA graduate learning her tradecraft in the turbulent secret mission to Pakistan.
