Angelina Jolie Directs with Heart

Angelina Jolie:  Celebrity with Heart
ISBN:  978-0-7660-3403-7
Library Bound:  $23.95
 One of the titles in our Celebrities with Heart series, Angelina Jolie: Celebrity with Heart, talks about how Jolie’s brother would point a video camera in her direction then call out, "Come on, Angie, give us a show!" This time she will be the one behind the camera with her upcoming movie, In the Land of Blood and Honey, which will be released in December of this year. Not only will this be the screen actress’ directorial debut, but she also wrote this love story that takes place in the middle of the Bosnian Civil War during the 1990’s. Enslow’s biography on this talented star discusses her work with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in depth and gives insight into her personal concern for those affected by war all over the world. This 128-page, perceptive account of Jolie’s personal, humanitarian, and professional ambitions, written by Michael A. Schuman, is an enjoyable read for grades 6 and up!
