Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s New Movie Together Looks Glamorous—Until It Doesn’t

A decade after Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt met on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the couple is once again portraying a deeply dysfunctional marriage on the big screen. In the Angelina-directed By the Sea, Jolie and Pitt reunite onscreen to play Vanessa and Roland, a couple in 1970s France. Given the ominous tone, the fighting (verbal and physical), and the closing shot of Pitt walking out as Jolie lies motionless on the floor of a lavish suite, there is clearly trouble at home. According to EW, the movie was shot last year during the couple’s honeymoon. Pitt and Jolie sure seem to love depicting estranged marriages—or at least they love toying with the public’s perception of their own.
