The 40-year-old Jolie Pitt tells that her 2015 film, “By the Sea” is a very personal film according to The Christian Science Monitor. As the name suggests the story is set in a place located near the seaside. Jolie Pitt who has also written and produced the film admits at the film’s premiere, AFI Fest’s opening-night gala at Hollywood’s TCL Chinese Theatre that she was inspired by the sorrow of her mother’s death while writing.
The “Maleficent” actress, Jolie Pitt lost her mother in 2007. According to The Christian Science Monitor, she discloses that she missed her mother badly and wrote the story without realizing what she was in the process of creating. Jolie Pitt also says, “And it was wonderful to work with Brad, and for us to be able to get through it together, because we tested ourselves to see if we could do something like this together.”
The movie, “By the Sea” is a story of a rich American couple who are taking a retreat at French seaside. It is a slow drama and can be categorized as a quiet film. Pitt plays the role of a character named ‘Roland’ who wants to create writing, but ends up in the throes of alcoholism. Jolie Pitt on the other hand plays the role of ‘Vanessa’ who is supposed to relax but finds herself in sulky mood all the time and “popping pills”.
In the movie, “By the Sea”, the couple avoids each other’s company and their unloving relationship is very obvious. It is not like the real Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Pitt relationship at all. In the movie their relationship takes a new turn only when they become friends with a newlywed couple who are honeymooning there.
Pitt who has worked with wife before in “Mr and Mrs Smith” is all praise for Jolie Pitt. He says, “She’s very decisive. She’s really intuitive.” He also says that Jolie Pitt has extremely good instincts when it comes to stories. He admits that he can put complete faith on her when she decides to redirect any scene.
