By the Sea (2015) Poster

(2015)

Trivia

Director and writer Angelina Jolie about the period setting: "I chose to set By the Sea (2015) in the 1970s, not only because it is a colorful and alluring era, but because it removes many of the distractions of contemporary life and allows the focus to remain squarely on the emotions that the characters experience in their journey."

Cinematographer Christian Berger said he will be employing mostly natural light for By the Sea (2015), using the 'Cine Reflect Lighting System'(CRLS) he developed together with Christian Bartenbach, an Austrian pioneer and expert on innovative light solutions. The lighting system 'CRLS' channels existing light using a series of reflectors that create a more natural lighting and at the same time a less distracting working environment: "It changes the method of working on set for the director and the actors, and in this film enhances the period and atmosphere." Berger already employed and perfected the 'CRLS' in some of his previous work including his Academy Award-nominated cinematography for Michael Haneke's The White Ribbon (2009).

By the Sea (2015) reportedly cost $10 mill. to produce, but only recouped $531.009 at the US box office. This was actually a respectable result for a limited art house release. It is not known, if the feature was a financial success in the end, but since it was sold to most territories worldwide and released on TV, BluRay and VOD, it probably broke even.
