Angelina Jolie felt ‘By the Sea’ would help her communicate with Brad
Angelina Jolie has revealed that she wrote the film ‘By the Sea’ hoping that it would help her communicate with her then husband Brad Pitt.
The couple began dating in 2005 while shooting for their film ‘Mr. & Mrs. Smith’ and got married in August 2014. However, two years later, in September 2016, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt.
‘By the Sea’, written and directed by Jolie, deals with a couple 14 years into their marriage, who are growing apart due to communication problems, intimacy issues, and fertility struggles. “We had met working together and we worked together well. I wanted us to do some serious work together, I thought it would be a good way for us to communicate. In some ways it was, and in some ways we learned some things.
But there was a heaviness probably during that situation that carried on and it wasn’t because of the film,” Jolie told. —AFP
