Uma Thurman starring in indie drama 'Girl Soldier'

Posted on

Uma Thurman will headline Girl Soldier, a drama about a nun who helped rescue 140 kidnapped Ugandan schoolgirls, Variety reports. The independent film from Caspian Pictures is based on Kathy Cook’s book Stolen Angels, which documents a 1996 raid by armed rebels on a boarding school, when girls were taken to be turned into soldiers or sex slaves. Teacher Sister Caroline tracked the rebels back to their camp and liberated 110 of the girls, then campaigned for help from parents, the government, the Pope, and the United Nations to win the release of other captured children.
