LONDON – Angelina Jolie says she prefers working behind the camera instead of in front of it, but on Tuesday at the London premiere of her searing prisoner-of-war drama “Unbroken,” she added that she is not giving up acting entirely.

“It’s not a big dramatic decision, I will do a few less but I much prefer being behind the camera,” Jolie told Reuters when asked on the red carpet if she was giving up acting in films.

“So it’ll be a natural transition, I hope. I hope I am a good enough director to be able to make the transition.”

Based on a best-selling book by Laura Hillenbrand, the film directed by Jolie tells how Louis Zamperini, an Olympic sprinter played by Jack O’Connell, spent 47 days on a life raft after his plane crashed into the Pacific, and was then held for two years by the Japanese.

It contains scenes in which Zamperini is repeatedly beaten by a seemingly psychotic Japanese prison guard played by the pop singer and songwriter Miyavi and is already the subject of Oscar buzz as a contender for Best Picture.
