“Rust and Bone,” filmmaker Jacques Audiard’s moving romantic drama based on Craig Davidson’s short story collection, boasts a thoroughly complex woman at its core.
We select 10 of the films we’re most excited about, including Terrence Malick’s “To the Wonder” and Ryan Gosling’s reunion with director Derek Cianfrance.
The French actor will be given the Hollywood Actress Award for her performance in "Rust and Bone," making her the first woman to be twice honored with the award by the Hollywood Film Awards.
Jacques Audiard's script for "Rust and Bone" had a big impact on actor Matthias Schoenaerts. "He gave me the screenplay, and then I read it, and it just blew my mind," Audiard said at a Nov. 13 screening of the film.
In “Rust and Bone,” Cotillard plays Stephanie, an orca trainer who loses her legs in a tragic accident.
Even as the movie piles on melodramatic tragedies, Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts give eminently watchable, painfully believable performances as the physically and emotionally damaged leads.
