Zero Dark Thirty
Though not directly about the events that unfurled that day, Zero Dark Thirty’s story is intimately entwined with the September 11th attacks. Starring Jessica Chastain, Joel Edgerton, and Chris Pratt, the film looks at the hunt for terrorist leader Osama bin Laden, who evaded capture for over a decade.
It’s a gritty look at the sheer amount of resources that went into the international manhunt, culminating with the leader’s death during a Navy SEAL raid carried out by SEAL Team 6. The film would go on to win an Oscar, as well as more than 280 other awards and nominations.
