Debuting at Cannes this year to very strong reviews – you can read our review here – Jacques Audiard’s Rust and Bone has been one of the most anticipated films of the year, and with its release coming in the height of awards season next month, we could well be seeing its star, Marion Cotillard, competing for her second Oscar following La Vie en rose.
We saw the fantastic UK trailer for the film last month, and now its US distributor, Sony Pictures Classics, have released the US variant, which is essentially identical, switching out the critics’ reviews with North American outlets.
“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.”
Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead) stars alongside Cotillard in the lead, with Armand Verdure, Céline Sallette, Corinne Masiero, Bouli Lanners, and Jean-Michel Correia completing the supporting cast.
Audiard, the BAFTA-winning writer-director behind A Prophet, is directing from a script he co-wrote with Thomas Bidegain (A Prophet).
We had the chance to speak with Cotillard, Schoenaerts, and Audiard at the BFI London Film Festival this week, and if you missed them, you can watch those interviews here.
Rust and Bone will be released in the UK on 2nd November. In the US, it will be given a limited release in NY on 23rd November, and is expected to open wider through the country in successive weeks. For now, here’s the US version of the trailer, set to the brilliant song, My Tears Are Becoming a Sea, by M83.
