The Independent Culture

Matthias Schoenaerts, Marion Cotillard's beefy co-star in Rust and Bone, stars in a brooding rural crime saga from Belgium, playing a cattle farmer who deals in illegal growth hormones.

I admit, I never completely got to grips with which character was selling hormones to which, but Bullhead is serious and strikingly shot, with a powerful sense of mood and place, and Schoenaerts is definitely on his way to international stardom.
