Film This Weekend: By The Sea
Posted in: FILM THIS WEEKEND
This week at the box office it’s all about the fierce ladies fighting it out for viewership. Angelina Jolie’s “By The Sea” is pitted against mighty comedian duo Amy Poehler and Tina Fey’s much awaited release “Sisters”. Who takes the crown? Well, we are about to find out!
By the Sea
It’s the return of “Brangelina” on screen. A decade after Mr. and Mrs. Smith, the power couple of Hollywood doing a movie opposite each other is something we fans had been eagerly waiting for. “By the Sea” is a romance drama set in the 1970s about falling apart couple Vanessa and Roland travelling in France together, trying to make amends in their relationship. The time they spend in a sleepy sea-side town seems to bring them closer together as they open up to the vibrant locals in the area.
Angelina Jolie stars as Vanessa, a former dancer while Brad Pitt plays the husband, Roland, an American writer. The film has been penned and directed by Jolie herself, and even though she seems to be a strong hand behind the camera, the film does lack in certain areas. Visually, it might be near to spectacular, however, By the Sea falls short as far as a strong script is concerned. But, for the sheer star power and performances, it does make for a great weekend watch!
So, these are the two films to look forward to this weekend. Its right before Star Wars week and with the Holiday mood picking up fast seems like this weekend is going to be pretty full at the cinemas too. If you are an Angelina fan, we believe “By The Sea” is the pick for you, but if you are in the mood for some high energy comedy – “Sisters” wins this hands down!
