Golden Globe®-nominee

 Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actress in a Drama, Marion Cotillard


Debuting on Blu-ray[font="times,serif;"]™ and[/font] DVD on March 19th

Culver City, CA (February 11, 2013) – Sony Pictures Classics and Sony Pictures Home Entertainment are pleased to announce the Blu-ray™ and DVD release of Golden Globe® nominee (Best Foreign Language Film and Best Actress in a Drama, Marion Cotillard), RUST AND BONE on March 19th. Directed by Academy Award®-nominee Jacques Audiard (2010, Best Foreign Language Film, A Prophet) and written by Audiard and Thomas Bidegain, the film is loosely based on Craig Davidson’s short story collection of the same name, and stars Academy Award®-winner Marion Cotillard (2007 Best Actress, La Vie en Rose) and Matthias Schoenaerts (Bullhead).

In addition to its Golden Globe nominations, RUST AND BONE was chosen as Best Film by the BFI London Film Festival, and Cotillard was awarded Actress of the Year by the Hollywood Film Festival.  Cotillard was also nominated for SAG and BAFTA Awards for her lead performance. An official 2012 selection of the Toronto International Film Festival, the Cannes Film Festival and the Telluride Film Festival, the film is also nominated for Best International Film by the Independent Spirit Awards and Best Film Not in the English Language by the BAFTA Awards.

Special features on the Blu-ray and DVD will include a commentary track with Jacques Audiard and Thomas Bidegain, six deleted scenes with commentary, and two featurettes: The “VFX Breakdown by Mikros” and “Making Rust and Bone:  A Film by Antonin Peretjatko,” giving a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film.  The Blu-ray and DVD also come with “On the Red Carpet:  Toronto International Film Festival,” capturing cast and crew on the red carpet, answering questions and introducing the film for the TIFF screening.


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, 2008, 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 Schoenaerts, 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.

    [*] Commentary with director/writer Jacques Audiard and co-writer Thomas Bidegain
    [*] Six deleted scenes with commentary
    [*] Making Rust and Bone:  A Film by Antonin Peretjatko
