Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie Look Troubled in First 'By the Sea' Photos
Right in the middle of this summer, we learned that Angelina Jolie would direct husband Brad Pitt in her third turn as director with an intimate drama called By the Sea. This marks the first time Jolie has starred in a film with Pitt that she is also directing, not to mention writing the script, and even though her sophomore effort Unbroken is due in theaters until this winter, production has already begun on the new film and EW has the first photos and details on the story. Following their real-life marriage last month, Pitt and Jolie are playing a couple whose marriage is on the brink of falling apart as they travel around France.
Here's the first photos from Angelina Jolie's By the Sea from EW:
More specifically, here's what EW says of the film: Set in France during the mid-1970s, Jolie plays Vanessa, a former dancer, and Pitt is 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…" The town's intriguing residents include Niels Arestrup (the War Horse actor pictured above with Pitt) and Richard Bohringer (The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover). Could we be looking at another awards contender for Jolie as a filmmaker? Stay tuned.
