Oscar for 'Unbroken' would be great: Angelina Jolie

London: Actress Angelina Jolie says it would be a “great deal” for her if her forthcoming movie 'Unbroken' can win her an Oscar.

"Unbroken" is about the life of World War II hero Louis 'Louie' Zamperini, a former American Olympic track star who survives a plane crash in the Pacific, and after being discovered floating on a raft after 47 days, is made a prisoner of war by Japan and spends two-and-half years being tortured whilst incarcerated.

The Hollywood star has said that it meant a lot to her to be able to bring Zamperini's story to the big screen and therefore she would cherish any Oscar win even more than her first Academy Award 14 years ago for "Girl, Interrupted", reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Speaking at the British premiere of the film here, she said: "I love directing and most of all I felt very responsible to this story and this man's life."

When asked what Oscar success would mean, she replied: "It would mean a great deal to me, for sure."

The much anticipated film is set to release Dec 25.
