The first images from By the Sea are now online, revealing stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in their first on-screen pairing since Mr. & Mrs. Smith. Jolie also writes and directs the Universal Pictures release. Check out the new stills below, courtesy of EW.
“Set in France during the mid-1970s,” reads the outlet’s plot description, “Jolie plays Vanessa, a former dancer, and Pitt is her husband Roland, an American writer. As they 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/cafe-keeper and hotel owner.”
Jolie, who made her feature directing debut with In the Land of Blood and Honey, will soon release Unbroken, an epic drama directed and produced by Jolie based on the true story of Olympian and war hero Louis Zamperini and adapted from author Laura Hillenbrand’s bestseller. Universal will release Unbroken on Christmas Day.
By the Sea will also be produced by Jolie and Pitt.
