Head to Cambodia in video for Angelina Jolie's First They Killed My Father

02.20.2017

Netflix is rapidly becoming the harbinger of movies that normally wouldn’t get much attention from a larger studio. The artists have more creative freedom, and the reach of the film is more vast and immediate.  Such opportunity will ensure people see Angelina Jolie’s next directorial effort, FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER. The film is set in Cambodia and follows the true story of a young girl forced out of her home during the brutal regime of Pol Pot.  We don’t have a full trailer for the movie yet, but we have a featurette now that digs into the production of the film ready for your viewing pleasure below!

I’m not a huge fan of Jolie’s directorial efforts, IN THE LAND OF BLOOD AND HONEY and UNBROKEN, but I admire her for not choosing easy topics to adapt. All of her work, including FATHER from the look of it, deal with tough subjects and look challenging in terms of production. That alone is worthy of my ever-coveted attention, and when it debuts on Netflix I will for sure tune in. Can only watch THE OFFICE through so many times.

FIRST THEY KILLED MY FATHER should head to Netflix sometime this year.

First They Killed My Father is a difficult book well worth reading. I hope that Jolie offers a movie worthy of the book. Certainly, Cambodian voices should be involved as much as possible. The Killing Fields is an earlier movie about the same subject; however, it balanced Western and Cambodian perspectives of the genocide. FTKMF is very much from the insider author's experience and perspective just as Elie Wiesel's Night is from someone who lived it.

I'm not sure about her health problems, but she was one of the hottest actresses in the world, what the hell happened? She looks anemic and frail.
