By the Sea
Keep your heart-strings in tact, because By the Sea will rip your heart apart and reveal the real truth that lies within.
By the Sea is an upcoming 2015 American romantic drama film written and directed by Angelina Jolie. The film stars Jolie and Brad Pitt. Pitt plays the role of Roland, an American writer, who travels with his wife, Vanessa (Jolie), to a tranquil and picturesque seaside resort in 1970s France. Their marriage is in an apparent stage of crisis and 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 some unresolved issues of their own.
This film is one of the most emotional, dramatic and truth-bearing films of its kind. It takes you inside the life of a married couple and reveals the true ups and downs of love and the reality of marriage. There are no sugar-coated kisses in this film. Every moment and every event is so painfully raw with truth and emotion that you might just find yourself questioning your own relationship and realizing that there really is a fine line between love and hate.
Both Jolie and Pitt are extremely remarkable in this film. And, if you are a fan of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, you will most certainly enjoy watching By the Sea. There truly is a chemistry between these two actors—both on and off the screen, but we already know that. We give By the Sea a hearty ‘two-thumbs’ up.
The film is scheduled to be released in theaters on November 13, 2015, by Universal Pictures and promises to be one of the most dramatic, breath-taking and heart-felt films of the year.
