I’ve heard wonderful reviews for Rust and Bone. I’ve also heard it’s not for the faint of heart. That alone has me curious. So let’s see what kind of romance this story really is.
*****From the theater website:
Academy Award-winning actress Marion Cotillard (La Vie en Rose, The Dark Knight Rises) gives a tour-de-force performance in Rust and Bone that rivals anything she has done before. She plays Stéphanie, a free-spirited whale trainer at a marine park on the French Riviera, who suffers a devastating injury. Macho Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts, Bullhead), sullen, impulsive, and broke, has just been given custody of his five-year-old son and is struggling to care for him. He finds work as a bouncer and extreme fighter, and meets Stéphanie when he protects her in a fight at the club where he works. Later, after her accident, she calls him for help, and they begin an unlikely romance. Both are struggling to overcome injuries and rebuild their lives, and their relationship reaches the extremes of physical and emotional intensity. Mesmerizing and unforgettable, Rust and Bone is masterfully directed by Jacques Audiard (A Prophet).
I will purchase my ticket at 6:15 p.m. and wait at the foot of the stairs in the theater lobby. Look for me carrying a red backpack. We can introduce ourselves before the movies begins. (The movie starts at 6:45 p.m.)
At about 6:30, I will move into the theater auditorium so we can get seats (and I can’t miss the previews!). You can find me in the theater auditorium if you are late.
After the movie, I will wait at the foot of the stairs in the theater lobby to gather everyone. Look for the red backpack. We can go out after the movie for tea or coffee, or a bite to eat, whatever the group decides.
>>If<< we decide to go out after the movie, be prepared to add 25% to the cost of your order for both the tax and the tip. Restaurants in the area add the gratuity to the check automatically. Bring CASH to make division of the check easier.
Please RSVP if you plan to attend this event so I know who to look for.
