Jolie’s By the Sea to open November 13
08 November 2015, Nirapad News: “By the Sea” is a very personal film for Angelina Jolie Pitt — and not just because it reunites her onscreen with her husband, Brad Pitt. It’s not even because she wrote, directed, produced and stars in the film.
“By the Sea” opens in theaters Nov. 13
“By the Sea” is personal because it was inspired by the grief of losing her mother in 2007, Jolie Pitt said Thursday at the film’s premiere, AFI Fest’s opening-night gala at Hollywood’s TCL Chinese Theatre.
She started writing when she was missing her mother, without knowing exactly what she was creating.
“By the Sea” is a slow, quiet drama about a wealthy American couple on a French seaside retreat. Roland (Pitt) is there to write, but mostly just ends up drinking. Vanessa (Jolie Pitt) is there to relax, but ends up grumping around and popping pills. They avoid each other and their relationship is clearly strained. Their dynamic begins to change when they befriend (and secretly spy on) a newlywed couple on their honeymoon.
