“By the Sea” would be an interesting film on its own terms, if only due to the deliciously scandalous personal lives of its two leads. And what transpired shortly after its release in 2015 only thickens the plot. The film not only stars Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt as a married couple dealing with some serious issues, it was shot on Jolie and Pitt’s honeymoon, with Angelina Jolie herself taking on the writing and directing duties. It was the first film the two acted in together since “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” in 2005, which sparked the beginning of a media frenzy around them after Brad Pitt left his wife Jennifer Aniston for Jolie, who gave birth to their first child in 2006.
