Angelina Jolie’s directional venture was completely dismissed by several critics. “Self-indulgent”, “pretentious”, and “tepid” were some of the adjectives used by some critics while describing Jolie’s movie “By the Sea”.

The movie revolves around the subject of marital drama and got released in the United States earlier in the month this year. It managed to earn only $300,000 to date. If the figures are correct, it is a big loss as the movie’s reported budget of about $10 million.

However, many industry insiders have speculated that the actual figure could be close to $40 million, as the shoot in Malta was for a long duration.

Angelina Jolie, at present is the actress who commands the highest fees among all actresses in Hollywood. She has been widely acknowledged for her contribution towards charity work and has received the title of honorary Dame from the British Empire. Now who should be held responsible for such a big flop?

Jolie starred, wrote, and directed the movie that also saw her husband Brad Pitt playing an important role. Jolie and Pitt have six children between them.

If Jolie’s past record is to be checked, the disaster is not that surprising though, Time Magazine has given her the title of “The most influential woman in the world” and her last salary for a movie was about $33 million. This made her the only Hollywood actress, whose name featured in the highest 10 earners.

Surprisingly, Jolie 40, has very few hit movies under her belt.

The biggest of all these hits was “Maleficent”, that got released last year. Angelina Jolie played the role of an evil fairy for Sleeping Beauty. Though the movie was a high grosser with earnings of $758 globally, some argue that it was more due to its content rather than the star.
