How 'Tomb Raider' inspired Angelina Jolie's unflinching new Cambodian film

How 'Tomb Raider' inspired Angelina Jolie's unflinching new Cambodian film”

Angelina Jolie walked the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival Sunday with a rather large entourage - four of her six children.

Angelina said she hopes her children pursue passions by their own volition, and the same goes for their interest in social advocacy.

Jolie added, "The film is about family".

The 42-year-old was promoting new film The Breadwinner, which she produced and directed. Over Labour Day weekend, all six of her children joined her at the Telluride Film Festival where "First They Killed My Father" premiered for a second time - the first being in Cambodia. Seemingly the struggle and dispute in contemporary worldly situations have inspired most of her recent films.

"I did start to get into acting and I did it partially because it was something to do with my mom and it made her so happy", Jolie said of her mother, who died of cancer in 2007. "The nice thing about being a director is to champion other people", she continued.
