A strong-willed young woman, who, frustrated by on-going injustice at home, leaves the U.S. after meeting Jude, an American doctor who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire. A world both exotic and dangerous, and on the brink of what is about to become World War I. 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 most awful couple of hours of two-dimensional clap-trap I have subjected myself to for several years. Don't waste your time on this drivel. I can't believe Ben Kingsley allowed himself to be duped into this nonsense. Shockingly wooden acting, criminally historically inaccurate, and a script that most ten-year-olds would find insultingly beneath them. This film is a barrage of banality. Awful. Really awful. I'm serious.
