By The Sea certainly isn’t for the Mr And Mrs Smith Crowd. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie star as a husband and wife going through marital problems in a French coastal village during the 1970s. Jolie is becoming something of an auteur, having written and directed this follow-up to the quietly impressive WWII drama Unbroken. This looks intriguing and it might have a solid shot at gaining some gold in the coming awards season.
There’s a nice use of the old Universal Pictures at the opening of the trailer too.
By The Sea opens in November.
