We, for one, are totally on board with more women directing. Particularly when they're telling stories as important as the one Angelina Jolie is tackling in her third jaunt behind the lens, the expansively titled film "Africa."
Based on a true story, "Africa" will follow paleoanthropologist Richard Leakey's battle to save the African elephant population in Kenya against the ivory poachers who cared far less about the gentle giants' existence and fare more about their tusks.
"I've felt a deep connection to Africa and its culture for much of my life," explained Jolie, whose other directed feature, "Unbroken" is said to be heading to theaters this Christmas.
That emotion was brought to life in screenwriter Eric Roth's "beautiful script about a man drawn into the violent conflict with elephant poachers, who emerged with a deeper understanding of man's footprint and a profound sense of responsibility for the world around him."
We're going to have to go ahead and agree with several other voices around the Internet though on that title front: calling the film "Africa" when it's not about Africa but rather this one specific event in one country that exists within the whole continent of Africa feels pretty glib to us.
But who says that's what it will stay, right? After all, Queen Angelina has the power now, so she'll certainly use it for good, right?
