The new By the Sea trailer for the film written and directed by Angelina Jolie Pitt
Universal Pictures has released (via EW) the new trailer for By the Sea, Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie Pitt’s directorial follow-up to the studio’s Unbroken that stars herself and her real-life husband, Brad Pitt. You can watch the By the Sea trailer in the player below.
Written, directed and produced by Jolie Pitt, the dramatic film also features 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.
“This is a story about a relationship derailed by loss, the tenacity of love, and the path to recovery and acceptance,” said Jolie Pitt in a statement earlier this year. “It has been a privilege to explore these universal human experiences with such a generous and talented cast and crew.”
