And the "him" in question is Louis Zamperini, and his story is rather incredible. Co-scripted by the Coen Brothers, and based on a true story, this awards season drama tells the story of the former Olympian Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who, along with two other crewmen, survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.
