Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts), a former boxer and single father, meets Stephanie (Marion Cotillard) when he saves her from a brawl at the nightclub where he works as a bouncer. Their casual acquaintance develops into something much more after Stephanie, who trains killer whales at a marine park, suffers a horrible accident and loses both her legs above the knee. As Stephanie draws on Ali's physical strength, an unexpected courtship slowly comes to life.
Some sushi and drinks at Sushi Dan after the film. We can chat up the show.
NOTE: The film starts at 7:30. You can meet the event host around 7:15. This is a cross posting with Independent Film Enthusiasts. I've already seen this one, so will not be attending. Check it out for Marion Cotillard's performance!
