Marion Cotillard in Guillaume Canet's 'Little White Lies' New Trailer
You've seen her in Nolan's movies, Contagion, Midnight in Paris, and as Edith Piaf, now get another look at Marion Cotillard in a French drama. This premiered at TIFF two years ago and is just now getting a US release, but some of you might be interested. Little White Lies is written & directed French filmmaker Guillaume Canet (Whatever You Say, Tell No One), and it tells the story of a group of friends bonded by love, and how their lives change when one friend ends up in the hospital. Marion Cotillard stars, plus The Artist's Jean Dujardin, and one who looks like a French Dustin Hoffman - he is François Cluzet. Enjoy!
Here's the official US trailer for Guillaume Canet's Little White Lies, originally from YouTube:
A near-fatal accident leaves one friend in the hospital while the rest go on their annual vacation. But their secrets and personal grief threaten to drive them apart. With its nostalgic soundtrack of classic hit songs from The Isley Brothers, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Janis Joplin, David Bowie, Nina Simone and others, Little White Lies is Canet's spin on The Big Chill, a generational statement on youthful frivolity giving way to middle-aged pleasures and sorrows, with a finely observant eye on contemporary relationships. This first premiered at the Toronto Film Festival back in late 2010, and is just being released by MPI Pictures in the US now. Canet's Little White Lies will be arriving in limited theaters starting on August 24th this summer.
I really liked 'Tell No One' and I like the cast here, Cotillard is great, Dujardin is awesome, I liked Cluzet in the few things I've seen him in, and just recently watched 'Point Blank' with Lellouche in which he was the stand out. Will have to keep my eye out for this one.

It's so weird... this movie was released ages ago in Europe. I have the BluRay sitting in my shelf at home, ordered off Amazon.co.uk. Strange that they would decide now is the time for a US release. Hoping to capitalize on TDKR publicity for Cotillard? The movies are so vastly different, I can't see that making much of a difference. As for Little White Lies - it's a bit much I think. Too long, but not bad. Not nearly as good as Tell No One, except maybe for the terrific soundtrack!

Doesn't the American Film Institute have as a major priority keeping the best European films out of the US for at least two years? Apparently this is a protectionist move so the studios can keep producing all this violent claptrap for boys 15-30. European movies don't show comic book "heroes" because they think human beings can BE heroes. Their films are about the mysteries of human existence, not the DC and Marvel view of a child's ubermasculinization. So we are not allowed to see the top European films because they are too competitive?
