Rust & Bone got a lot of praise at Cannes, which perhaps isn’t too unexpected seeing as it teams up the wonderful Marion Cotillard with director Jacques Audiard, who astounded world cinema audiences with A Prophet and The Beat That My Heart Skipped. The movie is about two people from very different worlds seeking redemption in each other. Marion Cotillard plays Stephanie, a killer whale trainer who late one night meets Alain (Matthias Schoenaerts) in a fracas at the nightclub where he works as a bouncer. Put in charge of his young son, Alain has come from Belgium to Antibes to live with his sister and her husband as a family. Alain’s bond with Stephanie grows deeper after she suffers a horrible accident, bringing the two together once more. Rust and Bone is released in cinemas on 2nd November 2012.
