Nominated for the Palme d’Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival and recipient of Best Film at the 56th BFI London Film Festival, Rust and Bone marks Jacques Audiard’s follow up to the critically acclaimed A Prophet.
Looking for a direction in life, Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts) arrives in the Antibes and meets Stéphanie (Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard), a trainer at the marine tourist park. When a freak accident results in Stéphanie losing her legs, their relationship becomes increasingly and unexpectedly intense.
