The film comes out in late December and, even with Jolie’s Hollywood clout, she is unsure how audiences will respond to the movie.
It is obviously not a story for everyone, since the themes are certainly troubling. But Jolie has insisted that, underneath the surface, there is meaning there for everyone, such as “how human relationships and behavior are deeply affected by living inside a war.”
“In the Land of Blood and Honey” sparked controversy back in October 2010 when the head of a group of female war victims condemned the film. The woman said that it was objectionable because it is about a woman falling in love with her enemy, reports Reuters.
Jolie insisted that people wait until the film was complete to pass judgment.
“There are many twists in the plot that address the sensitive nature of the relationship between the main characters and that will be revealed once the film is released,” the Oscar-winning actress said.
This topic seems quite fitting for Jolie. The actress is known as much for her humanitarian work as she is for her beauty.
She is constantly looking to shed light on international issues facing global citizens. She continually visits refugee camps, she has her own charities, and she is a proponent of adoption.
Jolie recently visited Libya to assist refugees in the war torn country and to show solidarity for the rebel resistance.
