Plot Summary
Based on the true story of the Armenian genocide in Turkey during the first World War
Director
I'm sure there are very few people saying, "hey, let's go see a movie about the Armenian genocide during World War I." That said, I think that most people that see this film will walk away with knowledge they didn't have before, and a compassion for the atrocities that the Armenian people had to endure.

The movie is interesting, but it is, and feels, very long. There are several powerful moments, but I think the movie would have had the same impact even if it was cut 30 minutes shorter.

Charlotte Le Bon and Oscar Isaac give wonderful performances. You feel the pain and struggle and heartbreak through them.

While I think that most people that see this movie in the theater will enjoy it, it isn't a film that needs to be seen on the big screen. In fact it might be better if you have that ability to pause it every so often.
