It’s that time of the month again, the time to suggest the best movies to see in that have come out this spring. There is a nice variety that March and April have offered. The following list contains releases on Blu-ray/DVD, limited theatrical and VOD. Some of these movies are mainstream, while other are small gems you should see:
THE OTTOMAN LIEUTENANT:
The Ottoman Lieutenant is one of those under-the-radar movies that you should definitely see. It boasts a really nice cast that includes Josh Hartnett, Michiel Huisman, Hera Hilamar and Ben Kingsley. Hilmar plays an American nurse who decided to travel to as a missionary to the Ottoman Empire region in order to help her doctor friend (Hartnett). Once there, she meets a Turkish officer that she falls in love with. The struggle between loyalty to her friend versus her love interest is putting her at risk at the inception of the oncoming World War I. Huisman is a talented actor who made his mark in The Age of Adeline, while Hartnett is back on screen after being one of the hottest Hollywood stars in the 2000’s. The film has interesting characters and there is a compelling love story. It’s definitely a buy for fans of romance, war dramas.
The Ottoman Lieutenant is out now in select theaters
