This week's movie is by Jacques Audiard, the director who brought us The Beat That My Heart Skipped (2005), which is a wonderful movie. One reviewer described Rust and Bone as a film "that finds the most stirring emotion in struggle rather than in ginned-up melodrama or easy resolution." Sounds good to me!
MetaCritc score: 74. RottenTomatoes score: 80.
