French Movie Recommendation

Am I still on a France kick after the marathon? Guilty!

If you have a staycation or at-home date night planned with your Josie Guy this weekend, I highly suggest ‘Rust and Bone‘, a great French movie I just watched. Released almost a year ago, this French film beautifully captures love, struggle, beauty, strength and heart. Watch it TONIGHT! It is not to miss.

Unbelievably passionate, strong, and touching.

The film is directed by Jacques Audiard, starringĀ Marion Cotillard (babe to the max) and Mattias Schoeaerts (hot damn). The story is about an unemployed single father who falls in love with a killer whale trainer. The film received rave reviews. Both Cotillard, known for her fashion (always chic) and her Oscar nomination for ‘La Vie est Rose,’ and Schoeaerts are incredible.

TEARS! This scene makes you cry like no other.

Matthias Schoenaerts, the new Belgian Brad Pitt, gives a breakthrough performance in this film. The New York Times T Magazine calls Schoenaerts the new American sensation.

Not a very flattering picture, but a powerful scene and image.

You can rent the film (with subtitles) on itunes or netflix. But be prepared for a tearjerker. Have a great weekend! I am so excited to NOT run a marathon, and to catch up on sleep, and eat.
