    First Look: Angelina Jolie And Brad Pitt In 'By The Sea'

There's her WWII survivor story "Unbroken" coming in December, but the actress/director/screenwriter is already at work on her next movie "By The Sea," co-starring new husband Brad Pitt.

    Review: 'You Will Be My Son' Tests The Bonds Between Father And Son With Truth And Ugliness

    “You Will Be My Son” could very well be the “Moby Dick” of stories about realistically awful fathers. The beauty of a gorgeous vineyard in France is obscured by the monstrous countenance of Paul de Marseul (Niels Arestrup), a bitter old man caring for his massive wine business with a pompous sense o...
