Ali & Nino

Christopher Hampton is one of the great playwright-cum-screenwriters, which means Kurban Said’s epic love story of the same name (considered the national novel of Azerbaijan) is in good hands. Throw in Asif Kapadia (the director behind 2015’s must-see documentary Amy) and you have a potent cocktail of distinctive talent that could make for a truly epic film. Of course, the premise itself, a love story between a Muslim Prince and Christian girl in Baku, set against the backdrop of World War I, couldn't hurt either.
