THE OTTOMAN LIEUTENANT
“A beautiful, strong-willed woman (Hera Hilmar), who, frustrated by ongoing injustice at home, leaves the United States after meeting Jude (Josh Hartnett), an American doctor who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire — a world both exotic and dangerous, and on the brink of what is about to become the first World War. There, she finds her loyalty to Jude and the mission’s founder (Ben Kingsley) tested when she falls in love with their perceived enemy, a lieutenant (Michiel Huisman) in the Ottoman Imperial Army. Now, with invading army forces at their doorstep, and the world about to plunge into all-out war, she must make a decision if she wants to be what other people want her to be, or to be herself.”
Since the film takes place in Turkey during the first World War do you think it will raise the issue of the Armenian genocide?
The release date of the movie The Ottoman Lieutenant is set to March 10, 2017.
