Angelina Jolie says she took on the challenge of filming “Unbroken,” which has defeated many before her, because she wanted to create a story of hope. The second-time director worked long on the survival story of Olympic and World War II hero Louis Zamperini. “I wanted to learn from Louis and be around this great man, but I wanted to put something out in the world that reminded us all of the strength of the human spirit and brotherhood and faith and all of the things that will, in the end, get us through these dark times,” Jolie said.

Nicki Minaj’s little dramas can be bent into a heroic narrative arc, if you're a fan. If you’re a skeptic, they’re pseudo-controversies posing as hype. And if you’re somewhere in between, they slowly accumulate into a weird tumor of anticipation, a hurdle that Minaj’s music must eventually clear.
