Overview

A struggling single father helps a beautiful whale trainer recover her will to live following a terrible accident that leaves her confined to a wheelchair. Lonely and destitute, Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts) leaves the north of France for his sister's house in Antibes after becoming the sole guardian of his estranged five-year-old son Sam. When Ali lands a job as a bouncer in a nearby nightclub, things quickly start to look up for the itinerant father and son. Then one night, after breaking up a fight in the club, Ali meets the radiant Stephanie (Marion Cotillard), and slips her his number after dropping her off safely at home. Though Stephanie's position on the high end of the social spectrum makes romance an unlikely prospect for the pair, a tragic accident at Marineland robs her of her legs, and finds her reaching out in desperation to Ali. Her spirit broken by the same tragedy that took her legs, Stephanie gradually finds the courage to go on living trough transcendent moments spent with Ali -- a man with precious little pity, but an enormous love of life.

Reviews:
"Cinematographically it is an expressionistic essay; intellectually, a two-hour conversation with its filmmaker." - 09/07/2012 Movieline


4 stars out of 5 -- "Cotillard's performance as Stephanie is flawlessly naturalistic, yet underpinned by all the emotional power necessary to play a woman in the midst of total transformation." - 12/01/2012 Total Film


"Cotillard builds on her exceptional talent...for inhabiting damaged but ultimately indomitable characters." - 11/01/2012 Sight and Sound


"Hunger of various kinds -- sexual desire, emotional need, the desperate, contradictory longings for freedom and security -- drives every character in RUST AND BONE, a muscular melodrama from the French director Jacques Audiard." - 11/23/2012 New York Times


4.5 stars out of 5 -- "[W]hat Audiard has created here is nothing less than the rare combination of high art and beautiful filmmaking with visceral power and gut-level emotional reality..." - 11/21/2012 Box Office


"RUST AND BONE is a deft, sidewinding drama about two people overcoming disabilities in body and soul." -- Grade: B+ - 11/22/2012 A.V. Club


"The film has a beautiful heroine brought low by a terrible accident and a brutish hero who's more eloquent with his fists than with words. It's a pleasing film with old bones, though its surfaces are all brightly contemporary..." - 11/21/2012 Movieline

"Romantic but pitiless, fearlessly emotional as well as edgy, RUST AND BONE is a powerhouse." - 12/06/2012 Los Angeles Times


"RUST AND BONE turns out to be the best kind of cinematic ride: surprising, spectacular and shot through with tough, unsentimental compassion." - 12/21/2012 Washington Post


"Marion Cotillard gives an exquisite performance..." - 12/06/2012 USA Today
