Oscar winning actress Marion Cotillard is set play the role of a paraplegic in her latest movie Rust and Bone and Marion has revealed what it was like to play such a role. Marion claims that she always does her best to portray a character to the best of her ability and this was no different.
Cotillard explained to Film3Sixty, “I try to do the best I can to imagine what it would be and if I'm lucky enough it works. But losing something and being in pain... I know what that is, and then it's just my imagination that works to try to find that authenticity of what it feels like to lose your legs.”
She added, "I think it's beautiful to show how someone can survive and be more complete without a part of herself than she was when she had her whole body. Emotionally, it's a beautiful journey to play.”
As well as Marion Cotillard, Rust and Bone also stars Matthias Schoenaerts and Céline Sallette. The movie synopsis reads: Put in charge of his young son, Ali leaves Belgium for Antibes to live with his sister and her husband as a family. Ali's bond with Stephanie, a killer whale trainer, grows deeper after Stephanie suffers a horrible accident.
Rust and Bone is set to be released in the UK on November 2 and then on limited release in the US on November 23.
