Marion Cotillard to Star in French Auteur Nicole Garcia's Next Film

Marion Cotillard has signed on to star in French auteur Nicole Garcia’s next film. 

Mal de Pierres, literally translated to “Evil Stones,” will be a big-screen adaptation of Milena Agus novel of the same name. The post-World War II romance spans twenty years and follows an independent woman’s search for love outside of her stifling marriage. 

“It’s a passion project for both Nicole and us,” said producer Alain Attal. “It’s a very romantic and intense story about a woman whose quest for absolute love is the essence of life, her raison d’etre.” 

Garcia is most recently the director of Charlie Says (2006), A View of Love (2010), and Going Away (2013). She received a Best Supporting Actress Cesar in 1980. She was also the jury president for the Camera d’Or at the most recent Cannes Film Festival.
