The French film “Rust and Bone” has been picking up awards buzz ever since it first appeared earlier this year at the Cannes Film Festival and just recently received the top prize at the London Film Festival as well. It is perhaps no surprise that the film features a riveting performance by Marion Cotillard, who previously won an Oscar for her French-language performance in “La Vie en Rose,” so for many American audiences the real discovery of the film will be Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts.

The Kings returned from their three-week Olympic break Wednesday in Colorado. And like most people coming back to work after a long vacation, they were a little rusty. But they refused to knock off early and were rewarded when a tip-in by Anze Kopitar from the edge of the crease 3 minutes 13 seconds into the final period ended a tie and lifted the Kings to a wild 6-4 victory over the Avalanche. "We could have packed it in easily and blamed it on the Olympic break, and it was the first game back and chalk it up with a couple of excuses," Kopitar said.

It is a basic axiom of cinema that kids and animals are to be dealt with kindly if a character wants to hold onto an audience's sympathy. In "Rust and Bone," Matthias Schoenaerts plays a man whose emotional awakening comes only after he has shown himself to be a disinterested single father, often seeing his young son as a burden when he isn't forgetting him entirely. During a scene where he is working as a late-night security guard, Schoenaerts' character even roughly kicks a dog. And yet he still wins back audiences by creating a sense of empathetic understanding for a character who could easily sink into despicability.

Kings captain Dustin Brown said Monday he was still working to "chip some of the rust off" after playing his first exhibition game Saturday and working hard through a morning practice. "My conditioning, the physical part is OK," said Brown, who sustained an injured hamstring at the start of training camp. "It was the little puck plays, a couple plays where I mishandled it or didn't make a touch pass I can make nine times out of 10. … I've missed training camp and it shows. "That's why I wanted to play at least one game, and with three good days to push myself in practice, I'll have skated for seven, eight good days before the first game.

Camera flashes illuminated the Metrodome on each of Brett Favre's eight plays for Minnesota. Captured on film? Only one completed pass. Favre's debut was a dud in terms of on-field action, a predictably brief exhibition performance in a 17-13 victory by the Vikings on Friday over the Kansas City Chiefs preserved by a goal-line stand by the third-stringers. "I just didn't want to fumble the snap," Favre said. "Wanted to make sure I got the handoffs. If you complete passes, great.

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.

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.

One thing that almost every schoolchild knows about Mars is that it's red. The question is why? Until now, the widely accepted scientific explanation has been that the red color of the dust that covers almost everything on Mars results from rocks having been rusted by water. New research, however, suggests that the planet could have turned red without any help from the water that once flowed across it. Scientists at the Mars Simulation Laboratory at the University of Aarhus in Denmark were able to produce red dust simply by tumbling sand and magnetite, an iron oxide present in Martian rocks, in glass flasks.

This is the town that helped build America. In its heyday, 30,000 workers here tended roaring furnaces and huge foundries, making the steel used in hundreds of World War II warships, the Golden Gate Bridge, the Empire State Building and other landmarks. But Bethlehem Steel withered and died in the 1990s under the onslaught of foreign competition, leaving the mill to rust along the Lehigh River.

The distinctive steel framework that six years ago won architectural acclaim for the Port of Los Angeles' headquarters in San Pedro is now a dirty word. The exposed network of girders, designed to resemble steel cranes in the harbor, has become a cozy roost for hundreds of pigeons oblivious, as pigeons usually are, to where they relieve themselves.

SAN DIEGO - Now that the heavy lifting's over, it's time to sweat the details. So a day after the Dodgers clinched the National League's West Division title, Manager Don Mattingly began resting his aching and weary regulars, starting a lineup in Friday's 2-0 loss to the Padres that included three rookies and six players who weren't on the roster three weeks ago. For Mattingly and pitching coach Rick Honeycutt, the final eight games of the...

Matt Leinart struggled in his debut for the quarterback-depleted Buffalo Bills, who closed the preseason with a 35-13 loss to the Detroit Lions on Thursday night at Orchard Park, N.Y. Looking like someone who had had only three days of practice, the 2004 Heisman Trophy winner was three for 10 for 11 yards and two interceptions before being yanked after five possessions. That represents a major concern for Buffalo, which scrambled to sign the 2006 first-round draft pick Sunday after losing its top two quarterbacks to injury.

To drive these days through Great Lakes cities - Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit, among others - is to drive through the nation's industrial past. The iconic images have become Rust Belt cliché: weed-choked parking lots, windowless houses, cold factories stripped of their metals and open to the elements. But there are human stories behind those static images, and author and journalist Edward McClelland digs deeply into them for his empathetic new book, "Nothin' but Blues Skies: The Heyday, Hard Times, and Hopes of America's Industrial Heartland.

There was precise timing, a fierce sense of urgency and a near-complete understanding between teammates. Yes, it was all there, via a montage of playoff highlights, on display on the scoreboard, not on the ice for three periods at Staples Center with Chicago beating the Kings, 5-2. Granted, the Kings of Saturday were never going to be able to compete with the Stanley Cup champion Kings of June. That would be wildly unfair with more than seven months between the games. Rust turned out to be a bigger enemy than the pregame hoopla for the Kings on a season-opening afternoon when they took a curtain call with the raising of their Stanley Cup banner and distribution of shiny champion rings from Tiffany & Co. The banner had barely settled into position in the rafters before the goals unfurled.

Hundreds of people have gathered at the site for about two weeks, but the throng swelled Thursday night after word of the apparition was spread by news reports.

Leroy (Rusty) Rust says a millionaire couldn't buy his life style. "Heaven could not be any better," he declares. For 24 years, Rust, 65, has been postmaster of Yosemite National Park. He was born in the park in 1920 and has lived his entire life here, except for a year in the Army Air Force during World War II. He has lived in Yosemite longer than anyone else. He jogs through the woods and lush mountain meadows every morning before going to work.

Moviegoers didn't exactly go psycho for "Hitchcock" at the box office this weekend, but the film didn't get slaughtered either. The movie starring Anthony Hopkins as legendary filmmaker Alfred Hitchcock debuted in 17 theaters this weekend and collected $300,800, according to an estimate from distributor Fox Searchlight. That amounted to a decent per-theater average of $17,000. The picture debuted to mixed reviews at AFI Fest earlier this month and currently has a 61% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
