Inspired by historical events, CLIFFS OF FREEDOM is a timeless and romantic story of bravery and faith between a Greek peasant girl and a Turkish Ottoman Colonel during the dawn of the Greek War for Independence when they were trying to free themselves from the brutal tyranny of Ottoman tyrants and enslavers. Check out the trailer below, it has some very cheap visuals and accents, especially in female lead.

    2. That's on Hulu here. I've been thinking about subscribing to that and canceling Netflix this year. We'll see what else they bring to the table first though.

    3. Hulu did say that they had 30% more subscribers this year. Amazon Prime is probably better than Netflix because they air epic shows from around the world, they even have the Russian ones I wrote about :) I've started watching Maria Theresia series on YouTube with Eng Subs!

    4. I do have Amazon Prime Streaming since we get it free with our membership. I haven't really looked in depth to what they have to offer though. I've been thinking of subscribing to their book service for unlimited book downloading a month, but may do that this summer when I have more free time (beach time lol) to read.

  3. I love a romance with a happy end. Cliffs of Freedom ends in.. tragedy.
    However, the two esteemed and honored actors Plummer and LuPonte, and the two young, good-looking 'impossible' lovers (the greek peasant and the turkish colonel), give it a good chance to be on my list of 'movies to watch' this year.
