WONDERFUL FRENCH FILM ABOUT CONQUERING LIFE'S CHALLENGES. AN AWARD CONTENDER.
A major perk of the movies is the opportunity to meet individuals that under normal circumstances you would never encounter; such is the case in ?Rust and Bone?. Two self-absorbed, struggling souls, meet in a club; ?Stephanie?, (Marion Cotillard) trains orcas (killer whales; largest of the Dolphin family) and ?Ali? (Matthias Schoenaerts) a bouncer, rescues her from an altercation resulting in one of the most unusual pairings in recent film...
Adversity can be a tool of destruction, bleakness, depression or the adrenalin to forge forward, spit in the face of unwanted havoc, delve into the bowels of one?s psyche, uncover the fortitude to thrive and survive. Stephanie and Ali succeed in championing the ?rust and bone? of their existence, alleviating the ache of their plight, different, but rewarded for the struggle...
FOUR & 1/2 STARS!!!!
