“This journey is far too dangerous we cannot possibly allow this.” “This is something I have to do.” “The Ottoman Empire may be entering a state of war any day now. You need to find a military escort.”
“You want to be a nurse here?” “You need nurses don’t you?” “This is no place for a woman.” ‘The Ottoman Lieutenant’ is a love story between a beautiful, strong-willed woman, an idealistic American nurse who, frustrated by ongoing injustice at home, leaves the United States after meeting Jude, an American doctor who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire, and a Turkish officer.
“This is ridiculous this hospital is in the middle of nowhere.” “You have your mission doctor and I have mine.” When the world goes to war the most dangerous place to be is in love. ‘The Ottoman Empire’ is a both exotic and dangerous, and on the brink of what is about to become the first World War. There, she finds her loyalty to Jude and the mission’s founder tested when she falls in love with their perceived enemy, a lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army. Now, with invading army forces at their doorstep, and the world about to plunge into all-out war, she must make a decision if she wants to be what other people want her to be, or to be herself.
The epic war set drama is the first movie to look at those on the other side of World War I.
