rust_and_bone_ver4Nothing says ‘Oscar’ more than playing a character with a deformity or physical handicap and actress MARION COTILLARD covers both bases in the new French drama RUST AND BONE. As a marine park trainer whose legs are savagely bitten off by a killer whale during a performance, COTILLARD gets to display an amazing range of emotions as her character overcomes abject despair to make peace with a new life. Co-written (with THOMAS BIDEGAIN) and directed by JACQUES AUDIARD, the cast also includes MATTHIAS SCHOENAERTS and ARMAND VERDURE.
Playing a person who has ostensibly lost everything in life is a tough proposition and COTILLARD, during a recent press conference to promote the film, admitted it was a far cry from anything she’s experienced in her own life. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
