Angelina Jolie at The Breadwinner premiere for Toronto Film Festival”

Netflix is distributing the film, which premieres on the streaming service this Friday, September 15th.

First They Killed My Father had its Cambodian premiere in Siem Riep on February 18, and its American premiere at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado on September 2. Surrounded by her children (only Maddox missed the call), the actress shone and seemed more happy than ever.

Angelina Jolie practiced on her kids when she landed the title role for the 2014 Disney movie "Maleficent". "It was not a goal to become a director", she said.

"The accent and everything about her was discovered when I was giving my kids baths", she said.

Knowing that the villain needed to have a commanding presence on screen, Jolie went to a voice coach to help give her character an extra edge.

"Sometimes maybe it appears I am pulling it all together, but really I am just trying to get through my days".

The title gives the second part away, but it takes a while to get there: First we must watch her and her family slowly waste away.

All six children - Maddox, 16, Pax, 13, Zahara, 12, Shiloh, 11, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 9 - joined their mother on the red carpet to celebrate the premiere of "First They Killed My Father" on Monday.

Jolie said her first major film as a director, the 2011 Bosnian war drama "In the Land of Blood and Honey", was prompted by her humanitarian work as a special envoy for the United Nations refugee agency.

"(But) films like this that spark discussions between adults and children, I think, are never a bad thing and using a respectful and responsible way to telling stories like this".

After Jolie's remarkable achievement in the world of acting, her ingress into the world of filmmaking already looks promising.

"We homeschool and I'm very very aware of their education, mostly very aware of what's lacking". They would say, 'What are you doing? "He's been very good at understanding they needed their grandfather at this time". Jolie's daughter, Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt also made a cameo in the film as the young Princess Aurora.
