[rating=3]Starring: Matthias Schoenaerts, Marion Cotillard, Armand Verdure, Céline Sallette, Bouli Lanners, Jean-Michel Correia
Director(s): Jacques Audiard
Writer(s): Jacques Audiard and Thomas Bidegain; based on the short story collection “Rust and Bone” by Craig Davidson
One of the more common images used in marketing Jacques Audiard’s intense new drama, Rust and Bone, is that of a killer whale, a gorgeous and not irrelevant sight given that Stephanie, the role essayed by Marion Cotillard, is a whale trainer. Having such a creature represent the film is a wise choice given that Bone itself is a crude look at animal instinct and magnetism – especially in human form.
