Angelina Jolie Pitt directs herself and her husband Brad Pitt in "By the Sea," the actress and filmmaker’s third effort behind the camera.
The real-life couple star as a glamorous but mutually repulsed husband and wife on vacation in a last-ditch effort to save their marriage. Jolie Pitt penned the script and set the action in the ’70s, a decision that evidently allowed the art-direction and costume-design teams to have fun with the gold and aquamarine "leisure chic" look of the film.
The just released teaser trailer is an escalation of tension and anger, gradually revealing the marriage’s terrifying maelstroms underneath the placid, beautiful surface.
"By the Sea" opens November 13.
