On the brink of the First World War, The Ottoman Lieutenant tells the story of a strong-willed American woman (Hera Hilmar, Anna Karenina) who, frustrated by ongoing injustices at home, follows an American doctor (Josh Hartnett, Black Hawk Down) to a medical mission in the exotic Ottoman Empire. However, her loyalty to both the doctor and the mission's founder (Ben Kingsley, Schindler's List) is soon tested when she falls in love with their perceived enemy, a lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army (Michiel Huisman, "Game of Thrones"). With the invading army forces at their doorstep and the world about to plunge into war, she soon realizes that the most dangerous place to be during war, is in love.

Common Sense Says
Old-fashioned wartime romance gets very violent.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Ottoman Lieutenant is a wartime drama/romance set in Turkey during the early days of World War I. It's a little sappy, but it's heartfelt and good in an old-fashioned way. That said, it's also very violent, with lots of war scenes, guns and shooting, punching and fighting, blood spurts and wounds, stabbing/slicing, explosions, disturbing hospital imagery, and other gory stuff. Characters kiss passionately, undress, and have sex, though it's a fairly brief scene with no graphic nudity. One character takes a hit of ether when he's alone. Viewers should also know that the movie is told from the point of view of the Turks and doesn't address the Armenian Genocide of 1915.
