Plot Summary

From the director of the multi-award-winning A Prophet, comes a gripping tale of two souls finding strength from each other after tragedy reunites them. Marion Cotillard (Academy Award® winner, 2007, Best Actress, La Vie En Rose) gives a tour-de force performance as Stephanie, an orca trainer whose life is transformed when tragedy strikes during a show. Faced with unbearable circumstances she turns to Ali (Matthias Schoenarts, Bullhead), a street boxer amidst his own battle of life-changing events. As their stories intersect, they navigate a gritty relationship in a world where love and courage appear in many forms.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Rust and Bone" is a tough movie about tough people for a tough audience. So prepare to get roughed up a little. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Dec 20, 2012

Fresh: You couldn't ask for a more random relationship, but "Rust and Bone" slowly, almost magically, gives it meaning, symbolism, even a kind of symmetry. – Rafer Guzman, Newsday, Jan 10, 2013

Fresh: A movie that defies categorization, slips convenient genre boundaries, and leaves viewers feeling haunted and inspired in equal measure. – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post, Dec 21, 2012

Rotten: "Rust" has some lovely scenes - Alain carrying Stephanie out to the sea - but it seems to wander off in search of something it already has, and in wandering, it loses its way. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Jan 11, 2013

Customer Reviews

Attention: Film is in FRENCH with no subtitles on iPad!

Since the description says nothing about the film being in French, the title is in English and the preview has no dialogue...I am more than a bit annoyed.
The fact that the subtitles will not show up on the iPad? Annoyed and useless.

Wonderful film and there ARE subtitles

First, guys, there are English subtitles on the iPad. See that computer looking icon when you tap the screen and start the film? Tap it and you can choose the language of the subtitles. Loved the film. I am humbled by the acting. It will stay with you.

carried by Cotillard

The movie bows and weaves and seems aimless but i all comes together in the end. Cotillard is brilliant as Stephanie, and Schoenearts isn't bad either. Don't expect a lot to happen, but expect to cry
