Outlaw Queen - Otp Soul Mates and True Love Madly in Love

Lana, Angie, Meryl and Mary are my role models♥

First look at Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt in By the Sea.

Although Pitt and Jolie just tied the knot themselves on Aug. 23 after a nearly decade-long relationship, this is how they’ll be spending their honeymoon — exploring a marriage that’s collapsing on itself.

Set in France during the mid-1970s, Jolie plays Vanessa, a former dancer, and Pitt is her husband Roland, an American writer. As they travel the country together, they seem to be only growing apart, but when they linger in one quiet, seaside town they begin to draw close to some of its more vibrant inhabitants, such as a local bar/café-keeper (War Horse and A Prophet‘s Niels Arestrup, pictured below) and hotel owner (Richard Bohringer, The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover.)

“I chose to set By the Sea 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,” Jolie said in a statement to EW.

 Universal Pictures will release the film, although no date has been set, and studio chairman Donna Langley said she signed on to make By the Sea after finding Jolie’s script so provocative. “I was struck by the fact that she and Brad are willing to bring such a brave endeavor to screen and take audiences on this raw, emotional journey that’s simultaneously of its moment and surprisingly timeless,” she said.

Pitt will be co-producing the film with Jolie, and among the film’s other crew will be editor Patricia Rommel (The Lives of Others); production designer Jon Hutman (Unbroken); and costume designer Ellen Mirojnick (Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps). The executive producers are Chris Brigham (Inception), Holly Goline (Unbroken) and Michael Vieira (Unbroken).

Cinematographer Christian Berger, an Oscar nominee for Michael Haneke’s The White Ribbon, said he will be employing mostly natural light for By the Sea, using the Cine Reflect Lighting System he developed to channel existing light using a series of reflectors that create a warmer, less distracting environment. “It changes the method of working on set for the director and the actors, and in this film enhances the period and atmosphere,” he told EW.

The film began shooting in Malta on September 8, and will continue through mid-November.

Hope you're feeling better. I really don't like Regina; can you remind me of her good qualities and whatever progress she's made?


Well, you don’t have to like Regina if you don’t want to, you know— character appreciation and shipping is love, and it’s difficult to logic yourself into or out of love.

But Regina has some aspects that appeal to me, such as:

  • Flawless fashion sense— Want an outfit that says ‘I may be dressed like an anthropomorphized, angry Christmas tree but I can still melt your face and steal your man’? Regina’s got one!
  • Sass— Her one-liners are great, as are her wordless, long-suffering side-eyes to Rumple. Say what you will about Regina, but at least she’s got a sense of humor.
  • A big (dark) heart— Regina loves deeply, and you can see this with Daniel, her dad, her no-good mom, Henry, Robin, and Snow.
  • Tries to be better— Regina often comes off as a spoiled brat, but she’s been having increasing flashes of self-awareness recently, from telling Henry she doesn’t know how to love properly, to telling Tinkerbell vengeance won’t bring happiness, to telling Robin she often takes things for granted, to making peace with Snow whacking Cora, to telling Zelena what a gift it is to be given a second chance, and genuinely apologizing to Belle. Progress!
  • Burying the hatchet (but not in anyone’s head)— I know giving Regina credit for NOT killing people is kind of damning with faint praise, but given her vindictive and impulsive streaks this is kind of a big deal. Now Regina is genuine friends with Rumple (who tried to suck her soul out a while back), Tinkerbell (who wanted to kill her), Snow (who inadvertently caused the death of Regina’s True Love), and Emma (who broke the curse and also Regina tried to kill her a couple of times). Plus, Regina tried to make friends with Zelena (who wiped Regina’s memory and tried to turn back time to make Regina miserable). Regina is now part of the Charming family and is co-parenting Henry with Emma (“our son”). Yay!
  • Protective streak— Historically what Regina’s been protecting is herself and her curse, but lately she’s been protective not only of Henry (from Pan), but young Roland (from the flying monkeys), Snow (from Ghost!Cora), and Emma (cursing her to have GOOD memories in the missing year). Also, she DID save the town from the Diamond of Doom in S2 when she saw the error of her ways.
  • Fabulous acting— Love her or hate her, it’s hard not to watch her. Regina’s got PRESENCE.


I’m working with the good guys?

Regina in S1 and parts of S2 was a REALLY, REALLY dark character, and I appreciate that she’s gone from trying to rip everyone from their happiness to trying to protect her new family. We’ll see if she backslides a bit in S4!

I know some talented people have made a bunch of gifsets showing how far Regina’s come in her three seasons. Can people please reply with links to the ‘Regina changing over time’ gifsets? Many thanks!
