Even after impressing movie buffs and fans worldwide with her 2 features in the director’s chair, “In the Land of Blood and Honey” and “Unbroken”, there are no breaks for Angelina Jolie. She’s quickly returning with yet another film.
For her 3rd feature, Angelina has gone in the opposite direction to serve up an intimate character study, a transition that might have just brought out the best in her. And for the first time since “Mr and Mrs Smith”, she’s reuniting on-screen with real-life husband, A-lister Brad Pritt.
In “By The Sea”, the power couple play a married couple in the mid-1970s traveling through France who are forced to re-examine their relationship after an encounter with a younger couple (Mélanie Laurent and Melvil Poupaud) in a seaside town. A short teaser trailer about a minute-and-a-half long has been released, but it doesn’t actually tell us anything about the film.
What it does reveal, however, is that Brad is playing some sort of a writer character in the film.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt reportedly shot the film when on their honeymoon last year, and while the setting looks like an ideal spot for a romantic getaway, “By the Sea” doesn’t look like it was fun to shoot. Because the trailer also features some pill-popping, running mascara, and abuse among the 2 characters, indicating that it isn’t a tale of marital bliss – probably the complete opposite of how they are with each other in real life.

The film is slated to be released on 13th November 2015.
