The 'Maleficent' actress spoke of finishing 'By the Sea' back in May, saying "it's not a big movie, not an action movie. It's the kind of movie we love, but aren't often cast in. It's a very experimental, independent type film where we get to be actors together and be really raw, open, try things."
