'Rust & Bone' in Competition at 56th BFI London Film Festival

We’re being hit with loads of news. The 56th BFI London Film Festival (October 10-21) unveiled their line-up earlier today – and guess what, ‘Rust & Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os) is on it. Not only that, it is also competing in the category Official Competition. There are 12 films in each of the 3 competitive categories. There are 2 screenings:

The festival’s comment to the plot synopsis of the “unpitchable” film is:

That such potentially lurid material is explored with subtlety and emotional complexity is tribute not only to Audiard, but to his extraordinary leads. Marion Cotillard is mesmerising in arguably her most challenging role yet, while up-and-comer Schoenaerts impresses mightily as an apparent lunk suddenly forced to look for his hidden resources. Rust and Bone is as punchy and abrasive as its title suggests – but intensely moving and surprisingly poetic too.

Additionally, Variety reports that Marion herself will be participating in a Screen Talk during the festival.

Brand-New Layout

After nearly 2 years (22 months) I was finally starting to get bored with the previous layout – however gorgeous it was. So Mel from Vintage Dreams designed the new look for the main site, the gallery & the video archive with pictures from the recent Grazia feature. Also a big thank you to Laura for her help with the video templates. I hope there aren’t any bugs – otherwise let me know.

I also started working on updating the information pages – while I’m by no means done yet, you can check out the progress over the coming weeks. In the meantime, how do you like the new look?
