No one doubts the humanitarian bona fides of actor-director Angelina Jolie. Her work with the United Nations has been rightly praised, and two of the films she directed—In the Land of Blood and Honey and Unbroken—demonstrated her commitment to making movies with a social conscience. Her newest movie, First They Killed My Father, which had its world premiere in Telluride and debuts this month on Netflix and in a small number of theaters, may be closest to her on a personal level. One of her adopted children, Maddox, was born in Cambodia, and she has returned to the country many times and developed a strong friendship with Loung Ung, whose memoir about the Cambodian genocide served as the basis of the film.
