Jessica Chastain Explains Meaning of 'The 355' Number & Movie Title

Jessica Chastain‘s new movie The 355 is out now in theaters and when you see the film, you won’t learn about the significance of the title until the very end.

Jessica opened up about the title more than a year ago and we have her quotes right here.

“So the woman I played in Zero Dark Thirty talked to me a lot about espionage and I think when I was preparing for that she started talking about 355 and I asked her what it meant. And 355 was the secret code name for the first female spy during the American Revolution. And her name still remains a mystery to this day,” Jessica said while at the virtual New York Comic-Con in 2020 (via Screen Rant).

Jessica continued, “But you know she was never even given a name or acknowledged for the incredible work that she did. So a lot of female agents use the code 355 as like a badge of honor. And I loved that idea of looking at women who have been doing the work behind the scenes who haven’t been acknowledged for the incredible sacrifices they’ve made and honoring those women with that moniker, that badge of honor.”

Without giving away too many spoilers, when the women save the world at the end of the movie, they realize they won’t be getting any credit for their work, just like Agent 355.
