Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's 'By the Sea' Gets Fall 2015 Release
The marital drama, which Jolie will also direct, marks the first time she and Pitt have starred together since 'Mr. & Mrs. Smith' in 2005.
Director Angelina Jolie's By the Sea is getting a prime award-season release date this year.
The Universal film, starring Jolie and her husband, Brad Pitt, is set to hit theaters on Nov. 13, and marks Jolie's directorial follow-up to Unbroken. Jolie and Pitt haven't appeared together on the big screen since Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 2005.
Also written and produced by Jolie, By the Sea follows an American writer named Roland (Pitt) and his wife, Vanessa (Jolie), who arrive in a tranquil and picturesque seaside resort in 1970s France, their marriage in apparent crisis. As they spend time with fellow travelers, the couple begins to come to terms with unresolved issues in their own lives.
“This is a story about a relationship derailed by loss, the tenacity of love, and the path to recovery and acceptance,” Jolie said in a statement. "It has been a privilege to explore these universal human experiences with such a generous and talented cast and crew.”
Added Universal Pictures chairman Donna Langley: “Angie and Brad have created an intimate gem of a film that will surprise people and delivers an experience they might not expect from them. Universal is honored to market and distribute it to audiences around the world.”
The international ensemble cast also includes Melanie Laurent, Niels Arestrup, Melvil Poupaud and Richard Bohringer.
