Amid endless public speculation about her love life, Angelina Jolie has turned her thoughts over the rainbow.

The Oscar winner and her brother, James Haven, have put together a heartfelt video tribute to their late mother, Marcheline Bertrand, who lost her battle with ovarian cancer three years ago at the age of 56.

A rep for Haven confirmed to E! News that he and his sis, who are both Bertrand's children with ex Jon Voight, created the tribute with old home movies shot on a family trip to Hawaii in 1981.

"One place Marcheline loved was Hawaii," reads a message at the beginning of the video. "She made many happy memories for her family there."

Cut to Marcheline, James and a barely 6-year-old Angelina on the beach, learning how to hula, goofing around in their hotel room and enjoying other island pastimes as Israel Kamakawiwo'ole's version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" plays in the background.

Sniff. Grab the hankies before watching this one.
