In The Land of Blood and Honey (opens Dec. 23)

20 Dec

Written and directed by Angelina Jolie, In the Land of Blood and Honey follows the story of a Serb soldier and Bosnian Muslim woman during the Bosnian War. Instead of casting Hollywood actors for the film, Jolie cast local Bosnians who had lived through the war and used some of their personal stories in the film.  I’m really excited to see this, because like most Americans, I know so little about this history.
