Pakistan stars in "Zero Dark Thirty," from early scenes at a detention site to the dramatic closing minutes as Navy SEALs assault the hideout of bin Laden. But the Academy Award-nominated film about the hunt for the al-Qaida leader has sparked a controversy here about its portrayal of the country, and it will likely not be shown on the local big screen anytime soon. Partly, the film taps into national discomfort that bin Laden was found to be living for years near Pakistan's equivalent. (AP Photo/Aqeel Ahmed)
