First BY THE SEA Images: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Star as Troubled Couple


The first images for Angelina Jolie's drama "By the Sea" have been released via Entertainment Weekly. Jolie has taken the role of writer, producer and director for this project in which she also stars alongside real-life spouse Brad Pitt. The film's story takes place in 1970s France and it focuses on Vanessa (Jolie), a former dancer, and her husband Roland (Pitt), an American writer, who travel the country together as their marriage is falling apart. The cast also features Mélanie Laurent, Niels Arestrup and Richard Bohringer. The film is currently filming in Malta and will be released sometime in 2015.

In an interview for EW, Jolie spoke about the film:
"I 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."

Official Synopsis
"Set in France during the mid-1970s, 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."
