“Rust and Bone” is a French film that consists of material that were it made in Hollywood would be considered award fodder. In France I believe it’s just a movie. It involves a single father who has a lot to learn about being a father and a woman with a particular disability. Their paths cross before she becomes disabled and it is to him that she turns when she feels nobody she’s known throughout her life can understand he new state of being.
