First look at By the Sea
UIP has today released three official pictures from the upcoming movie By the Sea. The movie, which is directed and written by Angelina Jolie, is due to release sometime in 2015. Jolie (Changeling 2008) also stars in the movie together with real life husband Brad Pitt (Fight Club 1999) and Mélanie Laurent (Inglorious Basterds 2009). The movie is set in the 1970’s and Jolie as said of the period setting that she ” chose to set By the Sea in the 1970s, not only because it is a colorful and alluring era, but because it removes many of the distractions of contemporary life and allows the focus to remain squarely on the emotions that the characters experience in their journey.” The movie is about Vanessa, a former dancer, and her husband Roland, an American writer, 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-keeper and a hotel owner.
