Although one could imagine that she’s busy enough being a bombshell actress, UN ambassador, wife to Brad and mother to many, Angelina Jolie is currently screening her first ever directing effort on a narrative film for select audiences.
Although Jolie picked up a directing credit for a documentary called “A Place in Time” four years ago, this is the first narrative feature film directed by the superstar, and she didn’t stop there. Credited also as a screenwriter, Jolie’s “In the Land of Blood and Honey” is set during the Bosnian war of the 1990s and deals with two people, Danijel and Ajla, stuck on different sides of the brutal conflict.
Starring Zana Marjanović, Goran Kostić and Rade Šerbedžija, the film opens on December 23 and is rated R for war violence and atrocities including rape, sexuality, nudity and language.
Can Angelina do it all? For first measure, check out the trailer below.
