The Hurt Locker (Kathryn Bigelow, 2008) will be screened on Wednesday 2nd February 2011 at 7.30pm in the Studio Theatre.
Baghdad Iraq. James, (Jeremy Renner) joins a tightly knit bomb-disposal unit where Sanborn (Anthony Mackie) is already the intelligence expert. James , by contrast, is a real cowboy. Even in the hulking shell of his bomb suit, his swagger is obvious. He has successfully disabled 873 devices, approaching the job with the no-nonsence grit of a Bigelow hero and the recklessness too. But as the unit faces tougher challenges with each new bomb, the men start to fight James’ bullish methods. They have only 38 days left in their rotation. They want to live to see day 39.
