Angelina Jolie didn't pick an easy subject matter for her directorial debut. The Oscar-winning actress wrote and directed 'In the Land of Blood and Honey,' a drama about a forbidden romance set against the backdrop of the Bosnian war in the mid-90s. Jolie doesn't appear in the film, which will screen in the native Bosnian language and feature subtitles, but early reviews have been strong and 'Honey' is poised to be one of the more intriguing indie releases of the holiday season. Ahead, check out the first clip from 'In the Land of Blood and Honey.'

'In the Land of Blood and Honey' is out in limited release on Dec. 23.
