We have word that director Jacques Audiard’s film, Rust and Bonehas landed the top award at the 56th British Film Institute’s London Film Festival.  The picture stars Marion Cotillard (Inception) as a killer whale trainer who suffers a tragic accident and Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead) as single father who helps her in her recovery. Audiard’s last effort, A Prophet, was also graced with the festival’s top prize in 2009.  Hit the jump to see the trailer, poster and synopsis for Rust and Bone, which opens stateside in limited release starting November 23rd.

Deadline also reports that the festival also spoke highly of After LuciaMichel Franco’s Spanish-language film about a young girl starting fresh in a new town, and Pablo Larrain’s No, which examined the effects of controversial marketing techniques on the end of General Pinochet’s tenure as President of Chile.  No stars Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries).

Here’s the trailer for Rust and Bone followed by the synopsis and poster:

Here’s the synopsis for Rust and Bone:

It all begins in the North of France. Ali suddenly finds himself with a five-year-old child on his hands. Sam is his son, but he hardly knows him. Homeless, penniless and friendless, Ali takes refuge with his sister in Antibes where things improve immediately. She puts them up in her garage and takes the child under her wing. Ali first runs into Stephanie during a night club brawl. He is poor, she is beautiful and self-assured. She trains killer whales at Marineland. When a performance ends in tragedy, a call in the night again brings them together.

    Excellent poster. I love Marion Cotillard. I think she’s a talented as she is beautiful. I tried watching “Bullhbead” but just couldn’t get into it. I think b/c I was dreadfully tired at the time is why I hit the pause button. But this project sounded like a WIN from the get-go. Can’t wait to catch this one in theaters. Toronto, Ontario better get this opening weekend too. I mean after all, my city does host TIFF.
