It’s a real family affair, with Angelina Jolie writing, directing and starring in By The Sea, with Brad Pitt playing her husband.
The movie is set in France during the mid-1970s, with Jolie as former dancer Vanessa, and Pitt as her husband Roland, an American writer. As they travel the country together, they seem to be growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such as a local bar/café owner (War Horse’s Niels Arestrup) and hotel owner (Richard Bohringer).’
It’s not exactly the most scintillating of set-ups, but there is a certain level of intrigue to the trailer, suggesting it may have enough mood, class and style to make it worth a watch. The film’s due for release later this year.
