Little White Lies movie scene

Marion Cotillard in Little White Lies.

Oscar winners Jean Dujardin (The Artist) and Marion Cotillard (Contagion) star in the 2011 French import, Little White Lies, a comedy-drama film written and directed by Guillaume Canet (Tell No One).

Following a motorcycle accident that leaves a charismatic member (Dujardin) of their group in an intensive care unit, a close-knit circle of friends embark on their annual summer getaway to Cap Ferrat in southeastern France. The friends’ sunny beachside idyll quickly becomes the backdrop of heated tensions and outbursts among the old acquaintances as the little white lies just beneath the surface of their relationships reach a boiling point. Among the group is Marie (Cotillard), a bi-curious music scholar; the wealthy Max (Cluzet), who tries to buy the others’ affection; and Eric (Gilles Lellouche, Mesrine: Killer Instinct), an actor whose pompousness hides boyish insecurities.

The unrated Little White Lies rang up a whopping $45 million in its native France before hitting a dozen-plus U.S. theaters in August, 2012, where it grossed some $200,000.

Little White Lies appears to have been the beginning of a beautiful relationship between filmmaker Canet and Ms. Cotillard: She’s starring in Canet’s upcoming English-language debut, the soon-to-be-released thriller Blood Ties.

There are no bonus announced for the discs.
