By Jacques Audiard with Marion Cotillard, Mattias Schoenaerts, Corinne Masiero. In French with English subtitles.
This romantic drama is a gripping tale of two souls finding strength in each other after tragedy reunites them. Marion Cotillard (Academy Award winner, 2007, 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 in Antibes. Faced with hard circumstances she turns to Ali (Matthias Schoenaerts), a street boxer fighting 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.
