Ten years after screening “Charlie Says” at the Cannes Film Festival, director Nicole Garcia returned this year to the Croisette with her latest drama “From the Land of the Moon” (“Mal de pierres”).
Starring Marion Cotillard, the film is based on Milena Agus’ novel of the same name and follows a French woman in post-World War II Europe who’s torn between the man she’s meant to marry (Àlex Brendemühl) and a charming war veteran (Louis Garrel).
A new international trailer released by StudioCanal shows the free-spirited Gabrielle fighting for her passionate dream of finding true love — an act that is considered scandalous in her small town in the South of France. While the sneak peek has no English subtitles, Cotillard’s performance guides the trailer forward, bringing a level of suspense and heartbreak to the clip.
Sundance Selects picked up the U.S. rights to the film back in March, but has yet to announce a release date.
Cotillard also stars in Xavier Dolan’s “It’s Only the End of the World,” which had its premiere at Cannes and won the Grand Prix and the Ecumenical Jury Prize. The Oscar winner will next be seen opposite Brad Pitt in the highly-anticipated drama “Allied,” out November 23, and Justin Kurzel’s “Assassin’s Creed,” set for December 21.
Garcia is known for her 2010 film “A View of Love,” 2013’s “Going Away” and for receiving the Best Supporting Actress Cesar in 1980.
“From the Land of the Moon” will be released in France on October 19.
