I know that there are a few on staff here at The Awards Circuit who are super excited for By the Sea, which will represent Angelina Jolie‘s next film as director. In addition to her directorial duties, Jolie has also written the movie and will co-star alongside husband Brad Pitt. Well, those of you looking forward to it can rejoice, as the powers that be have this one locking down a fall release date later on this year, specifically November 13th. That shows some confidence in the project on the part of Universal, that’s for sure. In addition to Jolie and Pitt, the cast includes Mélanie Laurent and Niels Arestrup, among others. You can see the plot synopsis for this one below, and stay tuned for plenty more on it. By the Sea is potentially going to be a big Oscar player later on in 2015, so sit tight.
Here’s the plot synopsis for the film:
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 (Melvin Poupaud), and village locals Michel (Arestrup) and Patrice (Richard Bohringer), the couple begins to come to terms with unresolved issues in their own lives.
