US actress Meryl Streep poses on the blu

In the Land of Blood and Honey

Also out is Angelina Jolie’s writing & directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey” about a man & woman torn apart by the Bosnian war. A love story set against a back-drop of ethnic-cleansing. There are images in this movie that are so AWFUL I almost walked out of the theater. I’m glad I toughed it out though because the overall story is truly compelling. I’m so please with Angelina because given her vast resources she could’ve taken an easier route. Instead she chose to write a challenging war piece and to introduce us to some fantastic new talent. This movie isn’t perfect, but I’m giving “In the Land of Blood and Honey” a B and even better, I’m forgiving Angelina for “The Tourist.”
