Universal Pictures has just revealed new images, including a poster art, from the romantic drama “By the Sea,” Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie Pitt’s directorial follow-up to the studio’s epic “Unbroken.”
To be shown exclusively at Ayala Malls Cinemas nationwide, “By the Sea” is written, directed and produced by Jolie Pitt, and 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.
“By the Sea” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
