Ottoman Lieutenant: WWI Romantic Melodrama

Exploring the eastern front of World War I, The Ottoman Lieutenant tells the story of a beautiful, strong-willed woman, played by Hera Hilmar.

Frustrated by ongoing injustice at home, she leaves the United States after meeting Jude, an American doctor (Josh Hartnett), who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire.  It’s a new world both exotic and dangerous, and on the brink of what is about to become the first World War.

While there, she finds her loyalty to Jude and the mission’s founder, (Ben Kingsley) tested when she falls in love with a lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army (Michiel Huisman).

With the world about to plunge into all-out war, she must decide if she wants to be what other people want her to be, or to be herself.
