THE HURT LOCKER
2009, Summit Entertainment, 131 min, USA, Dir: Kathryn Bigelow

Bringing together realistic action and intimate human drama, this landmark film won six Oscars including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. In the summer of 2004, Sergeant Sanborn (Anthony Mackie) and Specialist Eldridge (Brian Geraghty) are part of a small counterforce trained to handle Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), a high-pressure job that leaves no room for mistakes. When Staff Sergeant James (Jeremy Renner) takes over the team, Sanborn and Eldridge are shocked by his reckless disregard for military protocol and basic safety measures, and it seems only a matter of time before disaster strikes. Co-starring Ralph Fiennes, David Morse, Evangeline Lilly and Guy Pearce.
