Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt Fight it Out in Melodramatic New Trailer for ‘By The Sea’

The new trailer for Angelina Jolie’s By The Sea, starring both her and husband Brad Pitt, is absent of dialogue but it makes up for it in steep melodrama.

Here is the trailer:

And here is the official synopsis:

By the Sea follows an American writer named Roland (Pitt) and his wife, Vanessa (Jolie Pitt), who arrive in a tranquil and picturesque seaside resort in 1970s France, their marriage in apparent crisis.  As they spend time with fellow travelers, including young newlyweds Lea (Laurent) and François (Poupaud), and village locals Michel (Arestrup) and Patrice (Bohringer), the couple begins to come to terms with unresolved issues in their own lives.

By the Sea looks incredible depressing and difficult to handle, but I enjoy those emotionally overwrought films if they’re done well. Jolie appears to be channeling classic foreign filmmakers – there is a hint of Bertolucci here, especially with the old Universal logo – and the main draw will be seeing her with her hubby in such an intense film. It hits theaters November 13.
