Rust and Bone (2012) Rated R

Alain leaves Belgium for Antibes to live with his sister and brother in-law after he is put in charge of his young son. There he befriends Stephanie, a killer whale trainer, and their relationship deepens after an accident. Based on Craig Davidson’s short story collection. Starring Marion Cotillard, Matthias Schoenaerts, Armand Verdure

This powerful film deals with the broken lives of two people who come together to find happiness. Cotillard and Schoenaerts are exceptional in their roles; you can feel the pain and loss they have each experienced. You engage in their struggle to rise above the mistakes they have made- and continue to make- and to reach towards love and contentment with each other. Brilliant, raw, and unforgettable, this film is worth a watch.
