Rust & Bone Premiere at the BFI London Film Festival

After receiving rave reviews for his award-winning film A Prophet, Jacques Audiard returns to the director’s chair with Rust & Bone (De rouille et d’os).

Based on a collection of short stories, the film follows Marion Cotillard, who trains killer whales at a local marine park, and nightclub bouncer Matthias Schoenaerts. When Cotillard loses her legs in a terrible accident at work, she turns to Schoenaerts for support.
