Universal Pictures’ “By the Sea,” Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie
Pitt’s directorial follow-up to the studio’s epic “Unbroken,” has just
released its teaser trailer which may be viewed here:
Written, directed and produced by Jolie Pitt, the dramatic film stars Brad
Pitt and Jolie Pitt, who are supported by an international ensemble led by
Mélanie Laurent, Niels Arestrup, Melvil Poupaud and Richard Bohringer.
By the Sea follows an American writer named Roland (Pitt) and his wife,
Vanessa (Jolie Pitt), who arrive in a tranquil and picturesque seaside
resort in 1970s France, their marriage in apparent crisis. As they spend
time with fellow travelers, including young newlyweds Lea (Laurent) and
François (Poupaud), and village locals Michel (Arestrup) and Patrice
(Bohringer), the couple begins to come to terms with unresolved issues in
their own lives.
In its style, and its treatment of themes of the human experience, “By the
Sea” is inspired by European cinema and theater of the ’60s and ’70s.
Jolie Pitt is joined behind the scenes by a key crew that includes
cinematographer Christian Berger (The White Ribbon), who used his Cine
Reflect Lighting System to shoot the film; production designer Jon Hutman
(Unbroken); editor Patricia Rommel (The Lives of Others); and costume
designer Ellen Mirojnick (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps). Pitt joins her
in production duties, while Chris Brigham (Inception), Holly Goline
(Unbroken) and Michael Vieira (Unbroken) serve as executive producers.
“By the Sea” opens across the Philippines on Nov. 18, 2015 and will be
distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
