By The Sea:
Hollywood heartthrobs Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie star together again of the first time since Mr. and Mrs. Smith in this broody, abstract drama. Set in France during the mid-1970s, Vanessa (Jolie), a former dancer, and her husband Roland (Pitt), 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. Written and directed by Jolie, By The Sea features stunning cinematography and stellar acting by Jolie and Pitt in the big screen throes of a marital meltdown.
