First They Killed My Father Dir. Angelina Jolie | Official Trailer

I liked Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken," so much so that it almost made my ten best list in 2014. She clearly loves punishment delivered onscreen and does render it in artful ways. She tackles characters that go through severe mental and physical terror and "First They Killed My Father," her latest movie, seems to play along those lines.

Official Synopsis:
"Directed by Angelina Jolie, First They Killed My Father is the adaptation of Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung’s gripping memoir of surviving the deadly Khmer Rouge regime from 1975 to 1978. The story is told through her eyes, from the age of five, when the Khmer Rouge came to power, to nine years old. The film depicts the indomitable spirit and devotion of Loung and her family as they struggle to stay together during the Khmer Rouge years."
“First They Killed My Father” hits Netflix on September 15th.
