The star of Rust and Bone discusses the film and her career to date.
Even if a screening is sold out, tickets are often available 30 minutes before the start of the film at the box office at each venue.
Marion Cotillard’s early career saw her appear in such films as Tim Burton’s Big Fish, Jean Pierre-Jeunet’s A Very Long Engagement, Lucile Hadzihalilovic’s Innocence and the Luc Besson produced Taxi trilogy. But it wasn’t until 2007 that Cotillard really came to the attention of audiences around the world. Her astonishing, Oscar-winning performance as Edith Piaf in Olivier Dahan’s La Vie en Rose was a revelation and immediately established her as one of the most talented actors of her generation. Since that break-out she’s continued to work both home and abroad delivering memorable performances in films such as Guillaume Canet’s Little White Lies, Michael Mann’s Public Enemies, Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris and two films from director Christopher Nolan, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises. Jacques Audiard’s Rust and Bone, which screens in competition this year, sees her play Stéphanie, a trainer at a sea life centre who suffers a terrible accident. It’s yet another incredible performance from Cotillard, and one which has already garnered a huge amount of critical acclaim. We’re delighted to welcome her to the LFF to discuss this film and her career to date.
