There’s an awesome new UK trailer for ‘Rust and Bone‘ (De rouille et d’os). In my opinion it captures perfectly the essence of the movie and gives you a taste of how visceral & powerful it really is.

Marion Cotillard arrived in Telluride, Colorado (US) yesterday after reportedly taking four flights to get from Paris to Telluride (via Los Angeles). Despite being exhausted from the travel she charmed everyone. She attended an intimate filmmakers Dinner hosted by Sony Picture Classics (US distributor for ‘Rust & Bone‘) and was awarded the Silver Medallion for her performance.

TELLURIDE: Just left intimate SPC dinner w/ Marion Cotillard, Gael Garcia Bernal, and Dennis Quaid. Off to outdoor screening of Bernal’s NO.
PS: Marion Cotillard, even on no sleep and after taking five flights to get from Paris to Telluride, is still drop dead gorgeous. My God.

At SPC’s annual filmmakers dinner Saturday night, Rust & Bone star Marion Cotillard attended. Besides Best Actress Oscar talk, she received a special festival tribute today which she told me was quite an honor.
Deadline.com

At one table, journalists switched seats throughout the dinner in order to converse with Bernal and Cotillard, who were seated at opposite ends. Upon arriving, the two European stars hugged and proudly showed each other iPhone pics of their young children. Both had to leave a little early — Cotillard to receive her career tribute, which was moderated by THR film critic Todd McCarthy, and Bernal, with Larrain, to introduce the second screening of No, which was held at a nearby outdoor venue. … Cotillard, meanwhile, talked about how difficult she has found it to learn other languages — especially Italian — for films that she has made outside of France.

Marion Cotillard’s upcoming movie by James Gray is no longer untitled: According to The Playlist James Gray made a suprise appearance during the Marion Cotillard tribute at Telluride (more on that later) and presented a clip as well as the new title “Nightingale”. Why the confusion?

“It used to be called ‘Lowlife,'” Gray said, “But the author of the novel threatened to sue me. So now we’re calling it ‘Nightingale.'” Gray joked that a few others were vying for the title, but added, “We’ll win in the end…coming sometime in 2017,” he joked.

And here’s a description of the clip that was shown:

In the scene, Marion Cotillard’s prostitute character Sonya is in church praying, and then takes a confessional. “I’m ashamed,” she said through weepy tears and a tattered black shawl, before launching into all her crimes and misdemeanors: lying, theft of food, her rape, and ultimately the revelation that she’s been whoring herself out to help pay and take care of her sick sister.

Having just come off the boat from Poland a few months previously coming to the American promised land, it appears that Sonya’s dream of a better life is actually worse than she can imagine. “We were caged like animals,” Cotilard said about the voyage on a ship to North America. Her rape was public knowledge on the boat and she says she’s damaged goods, hence having to prostitute herself.

Seemingly waiting to exploit her when she got off the boat is her pimp, Joaquin Phoenix, who in this scene, surreptitiously follows her into the church and ease-drops on her confession. Renner’s character didn’t feature in what felt like it was probably a scene from early on in the movie.
