    Written, directed and produced by Oscar® winner Angelina Jolie Pitt, BY THE SEA is her directorial follow-up to the survival epic UNBROKEN. The film stars Brad Pitt and Jolie Pitt, who are supported by an international ensemble led by Mélanie Laurent, Melvil Poupaud, Niels Arestrup and Richard Bohringer. BY THE SEA follows an American writer (Pitt) and his wife (Jolie Pitt), who arrive in a tranquil and picturesque seaside resort in 1970s France, their marriage in apparent crisis.
