Jacques Audiard (A Prophet) returned to Cannes this year with Rust and Bone, his follow-up to the Oscar-nominated A Prophet. The film debuted to excellent early reviews – you can read our own review here – and will be making its North American premiere at TIFF next month.
Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises) and Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead) take the lead, and now we’ve got a handful of new images of the two from the film.
“Put in charge of his young son, Ali leaves Belgium for Antibes to live with his sister and her husband as a family. Ali’s bond with Stephanie, a killer whale trainer, grows deeper after Stephanie suffers a horrible accident.”
Audiard is directing from a script he co-wrote with Thomas Bidegain (A Prophet), with Armand Verdure, Céline Sallette, Corinne Masiero, Bouli Lanners, and Jean-Michel Correia completing the supporting cast.
Rust and Bone will be released in the UK on 2nd November, followed by a US limited release on 16th November, before opening wider in successive weeks. The film could well be France’s entry into the Oscar race, so be sure to keep an eye on when it’s playing in a theatre near you. For now, enjoy these new images, which you can click to enlarge.
