Following its Best Picture win at the BFI London Film Festival this month, Jacques Audiard’s Rust and Bone will be arriving in UK theatres this Friday, and the anticipation couldn’t be higher.
Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts star in what promises to be one of the year’s best films, and after catching the US trailer for the film earlier in the month, we’ve got a new clip to share, courtesy of the Huffington Post.
“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, the BAFTA-winning writer-director behind A Prophet, 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.
The film made its debut at Cannes to very promising early reviews – you can read our review here – and has followed it with a strong run on the festival circuit that I’m hoping will see Cotillard through to another Oscar nomination in the coming awards season.
Rust and Bone will be released in the UK this Friday, 2nd November, and certainly comes highly recommended. In the US, Sony Pictures Classics will be giving it a limited release in NY on 23rd November, before opening wider in successive weeks. For now, here’s the new clip with Cotillard and Schoenaerts.
