|Marion Cotillard Talks Rust And Bone|
With Jacques Audiard and Matthias Schoenaerts
You could argue until the whales come home about who plays lead in Jacques Audiard's powerful new drama. Marion Cotillard's class elevates her role from potential victimhood to something transcendent while a face that will be new to many moviegoers, Belgian Matthias Schoenaerts, delivers a performance that's full of sex, sweat and sinew. Either way, Rust And Bone is much more than Free Willy with a Tricolour. Empire spoke to its two main stars, as well as director Jacques Audiard and his screenwriting partner Thomas Bidegain, about the acclaimed drama.
