So she’s called Angelina Jolie Pitt now…cool. But why isn’t Jolie Pitt hyphenated? A Deadline piece says that By The Sea (Universal, 11.13), which AJP directed, wrote, produced and co-stars in with Brad Pitt, is set in the ’70s…good creative decision! Deadline says it’s “inspired by European cinema and theater of the 1960s and ’70s,” which gets my vote sight unseen. Theoretically, I mean. Shot in Malta but set in a French seaside village, pic is about an American writer Roland (Pitt) and his wife Vanessa (Jolie Pitt) coping with a troubled marriage. Given the freewheeling sexual climate of the ’70s I’m presuming that an incident of infidelity, presumably Roland’s, is a cause of the difficulty. That or a deceased child. Jolie Pitt’s statement: “This is a story about a relationship derailed by loss, the tenacity of love and the path to recovery and acceptance.” (That sentence indicates that “the tenacity of love” and “the path to recovery and acceptance” are part of the derailment — awkward phrasing.) Costarring Mélanie Laurent, Melvil Poupaud, Niels Arestrup and Richard Bohringer.
