"Rust and Bone" Opening Night Party

The powerful French drama Rust and Bone (De rouille et d'os), which has been nominated for two Golden Globes, will begin its South Florida First Run Engagement on Friday, January 11, in 35mm at the Gables Cinema. A roughly handsome drifter, some-time professional boxer and single father begins a tentative friendship with a beautiful and aloof woman, played by Academy Award-winner Marion Cotillard of La vie en rose. Working at a Sea World-type attraction with killer whales, she suffers a near fatal accident that takes the film down some surprising and powerful paths. Don’t miss the Cinema’s Opening Night Party for Rust and Bone on Friday, January 11, with screenings at 7:00 and 10:00 pm. Between the two screenings, a reception will take place from 9:00 to 10:00 pm in the Cinema's lobby and outdoor plaza for anyone who purchases a ticket for either show. The reception includes an open bar courtesy of Bacardi, and great food from Maroosh Mediterranean Restaurant. The Cultural Program Coordinator for the Miami French Consulate, a sponsor for the event, Kimberley Gaultier will introduce the film. The New York Times raves that this gritty romance, "...is a strong, emotionally replete experience, and also a tour de force of directorial button pushing." Tickets for regular screenings are $11.50 and under and tickets for the Opening Night Party are $20 and $15 for members. They are available in advance through the Cinema’s website www.gablescinema.com and in person at the box office during regular screening hours.
