By the Sea
The first trailer for Angelina Jolie’s second directed film was released this week, starring her and husband Brad Pitt. This film is drastically different than the last film the two starred in (Mr. and Mrs. Smith), taking on a more intimate and artful approach. By the Sea is set in the ’70s, and shows the disconnect between husband and wife until they find themselves in an intriguing little town in France. The film is scheduled for a November 13th release.
