Angelina Jolie‘s They First Killed My Father (2017) movie trailer and movie poster star Sareum Srey Moch, Phoeung Kompheak, Sveng Socheata, and Tharoth Sam. They First Killed My Father‘s plot synopsis: based on the book by Loung Ung, “Cambodian author and human rights activist Loung Ung’s gripping memoir of surviving the deadly Khmer Rouge regime from 1975 to 1978. The story is told through her eyes, from the age of five, when the Khmer Rouge came to power, to nine years old. The film depicts the indomitable spirit and devotion of Loung and her family as they struggle to stay together during the Khmer Rouge years.”

This looks like an outstanding drama in the familiar vain of Beasts of No Nation. Like Beasts of No Nation, the viewer sees a young child taken from their home and eventually inducted into military service. Unlike Beasts of No Nation, Loung Ung’s road was more arduous – she was forced to be slave labor crop fields before her military service began.

Since the First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers is based on a memoir, the viewer knows that the Loung Ung survives her ordeal. It is how she survived and what she endured along the way that make this film vastly interesting.
