From bateau-style T-shirts, to Marc Jacobs' spring 2012 graphic Mod black-and-white runway extravaganza and beyond, stripes are the fashion trend that just won't end. They've been hot on the streets and at retail for going on four years now. But whereas most celebs would have shied away from wearing potentially unflattering lines on the red carpet, that's not the case now.

"Blood Ties" is a largely engrossing drama set in 1974 that works better as an emotional study of brothers on flip sides of the law than as the Sidney Lumet-type crime saga it strives to be. Still, there's a heft to the proceedings that keeps us invested even when the story's various strands start to unravel. Billy Crudup is superb as Frank, an upright New York cop whose older brother, Chris (Clive Owen), is released from prison after serving a lengthy stint for murder. It's a testy reunion for the mismatched pair as old wounds quickly resurface and Chris' foray into honest work proves short-lived . The upshot: Chris' return to his violent, criminal ways eventually forces Frank to choose between honoring his badge or his family.

Following a Telluride tribute, Marion Cotillard arrived in Toronto on Thursday night for the festival premiere of French director Jacques Audiard's "Rust and Bone," a movie that wowed critics earlier this year at Cannes. Without revealing more than what's found in the trailer, Cotillard plays an orca whale trainer who, after losing her legs in an accident, begins an unlikely relationship with an unemployed bare-knuckle street brawler (Matthias Schoenaerts). Coming from the director of "A Prophet," the French-language film's melodrama and heightened emotions rate as something of a surprise, though hardly an unpleasant one. It's a movie full of passion and blunt force and fabulous acting from both of its leads.

Marion Cotillard wore a striking dress from Dior Haute Couture to the "Waltz With Monica" premiere at the 13th Marrakech International Film Festival on Wednesday. The elegant dress adds a touch of whimsy with orange-and-black-striped silk layered under a blue silk overdress -- kind of a grown-up pinafore. And stripes have been a "thing" on recent red carpets, Los Angeles Times' Fashion Critic Booth Moore says. [Los Angeles Times] Dame Edna Everage (aka comic Barry Humphries)

MARION COTILLARD has been praised for channeling the legendary French chanteuse Edith Piaf all but supernaturally in "La Vie en Rose." She does nothing of the sort. Much more interesting than that, this Oscar nominee for best actress is a conduit to Piaf. Sure, makeup makes a modern actress look uncannily like a great French chanteuse from an earlier generation.

For French actress Marion Cotillard, it's not the directors, the scene, or even the casting grind that can make Hollywood exhausting. It's the accents. The "Inception" star is the rare performer with a flourishing career in both the United States and continental Europe. But even after nearly a dozen English-speaking roles, getting her mouth around the words is still tricky. "I tried to do it for a little while without a dialect coach," she said by phone from Paris, in nearly flawless (but accented)

CANNES, France - For the better part of two decades, director James Gray has been making textured dramas about people, often immigrants and their children, who experience all manner of frustration and struggle. It prepared him well for the events of the last five years. Gray came to the Cannes Film Festival in 2008 with "Two Lovers," an immigrant-themed love- triangle story starring Joaquin Phoenix, Vinessa Shaw and Gwyneth Paltrow. Though many would later regard it as a bravura piece of European-style melodrama, it was poorly received in the echo chamber of Cannes reviewers and even booed at some screenings.

Dior's new designer Raf Simons has dressed a constellation of stars in recent months, including two of the highest profile guests at tonight's awards. Both ladies wore red, Jennifer Lawrence in a strapless, 1950s-ish style dress with a molded bustier that sent the Twitterverse into overdrive chattering about her assets, and Marion Cotillard in a more demure red column with draped detail, which was whipped up by Simons especially for her. Any pizazz that Lawrence might have had was deflated as soon as she opened her mouth.

Vacations invariably lose something in the telling. That's especially so for "Little White Lies," which gathers some of France's best-known actors for the laughter-and-tears story of a group holiday. With an ensemble led by Marion Cotillard and François Cluzet, the French hit has personality to burn, and squanders most of it. Writer-director Guillaume Canet's episodic mix of heavy-handed drama, broad comedy and "fun stuff you do by the sea," as one character describes the getaway, has its effective moments but overstays its welcome by a long shot.

Romantic but pitiless, fearlessly emotional as well as edgy, "Rust and Bone" is a powerhouse. It's the kind of risky venture only a consummate filmmaker could manage, and then only with the help of actors who are daring and accomplished. With director Jacques Audiard in charge and Marion Cotillard and Matthias Schoenaerts as stars, all the pieces have fallen exactly into place. Although "Rust and Bone" is old fashioned and sentimental at its core, this film's idea of romance is not everyone's, and it's certainly not Jane Austen's.

She's described by director Jacques Audiard as "a diver," someone who "throws herself into a role head first. " So it's believable that the very first scene Marion Cotillard shot for "Rust and Bone" was the most harrowing one, in which she awakes in a hospital after an accident to discover that both her legs are gone. Her reaction is partly improvised - she leaps from the bed only to wind up crawling on the floor and sobbing in the arms of a friend who rushes to her aid. ENVELOPE SCREENING SERIES: "Rust and Bone" "My feeling was that, in that situation, which is so violent and horrifying, the shock must be so strong that you're in denial," says the acclaimed French actress over coffee at the Chateau Marmont.

Thursday's Golden Globes nominations for best performance by a lead actress in a motion picture drama nearly mirrored Wednesday's announcement for the Screen Actors Guild lead actress nominees with Jessica Chastain facing off against Marion Cotillard, Helen Mirren and Naomi Watts in both contests. Those actresses are joined in the Golden Globe balloting by Rachel Weisz, honored for her role as a moneyed housewife who falls for an ex-fighter pilot before plunging into suicidal despair.
