Jolie is directing the film version of “Unbroken,” which will be released Christmas Day.

With Brokaw, Jolie opens up about her determination to direct this film, made during a challenging time in her own life. Brokaw’s interview, which airs tomorrow on “Today,” follows a 3-minute film preview Brokaw narrated that aired during the Sochi games.

“Unbroken” was produced by NBCU’s Universal Pictures. In the past, Ann Curry has been Jolie’s go-to NBC reporter when discussing her humanitarian work.
