Over the net few weeks, as films begin to unspool in Venice, Telluride, Toronto and New York, we’ll be beginning to see which films will rise up as awards season contenders, and which will slip away. One film everyone agrees will be in the mix in a big way is Jacques Audiard‘s “Rust And Bone.” After premiering at the Cannes Film Festival this spring, the film hits Toronto this month before arriving in theaters this fall, and a new U.K. trailer is here to remind you this is one to watch.
Starring Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts, who both give astounding performances, the film chronicles the unlikely relationship between a marine park worker who loses her legs and a single father trying to eek out a living to provide for his young son. What emerges in the film is a portrait of two people in deep pain, who are so used to surviving on their own that being vulnerable and giving for someone else is a challenge. Cotillard and Schoenaerts are just astounding in a film that we called in our review “a standout, a towering picture we can’t wait to see again.”
Watch the trailer below and in case you’re wondering, the song is “My Tears Are Becoming A Sea” by M83. “Rust And Bone” opens on November 16th.
