Rust and Bone movie scene

Marion Cotillard gets up close and personal with a killer whale in Rust and Bone.

Marion Cotillard (Contagion), a Best Actress Academy Award winner for 2007’s  La Vie en Rose, stars in the 2012 foreign language drama-romance film Rust and Bone.

Cotillard portrays Stephanie, a killer whale trainer at a local marine tourist park I Southern France, whose life is transformed when tragedy strikes during a show resulting in the amputation of both her legs..  Faced with unbearable circumstances she turns to Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts, Bullhead), a street boxer amidst his own battle of life-changing events.  As their stories intersect, they navigate a gritty sexual and romantic relationship in a world where love and courage appear in many forms.

Directed and co-written by Jacques Audiard (A Prophet), Rust and Bone is loosely based on Canadian author Craig Davidson’s 2005 short story collection of the same name.

A Golden Globe nominee for Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actress in a Drama (Cotillard), Rust and Bone was chosen as Best Film by the BFI London Film Festival, and Cotillard was awarded Actress of the Year by the Hollywood Film Festival. Playing festivals and theatrical dates across the world, the movie has thus far rang up $2 million at the domestic box over the course of its limited run in U.S. theaters, which began in November, 2012.
