INCEPTION

MARION COTILLARD (Mal) won a Best Actress Academy Award® for her performance in the 2007 film "La Vie en Rose,” making her the first actress to earn an Oscar® for a performance in the French language. For her captivating portrayal of legendary French chanteuse Edith Piaf in that film, Cotillard also won a BAFTA Award, a Golden Globe and a César Award, and received Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® and Critics' Choice Award nominations. In addition, she was named Best Actress by critics organizations worldwide, including the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and the London Film Critics Circle.

Cotillard will next be seen in ”Little White Lies,” written and directed by Guillaume Canet and slated for release in France this fall. The film follows a successful restaurant owner and his eco-friendly wife who stage a grand vacation for friends at their beach house. The vacation leads to a moment when the mood sobers as characters begin to confess their innermost concerns.

This summer, Cotillard begins filming Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris,” starring opposite Rachel McAdams and Owen Wilson in a romantic comedy that explores the illusion people have that a life different from their own is better. Following that, she starts production on Steven Soderbergh's "Contagion,” opposite Jude Law, Matt Damon and Kate Winslet. The action drama is centered on the threat posed by a deadly disease and an international team of doctors contracted by the CDC to deal with the potential worldwide epidemic. Additionally, Cotillard is attached to star opposite Colin Farrell in David Cronenberg's thriller "Cosmopolis,” an adaptation of Don DeLillo's novel, which follows a multimillionaire on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan.

Cotillard's other credits include the successful French "Taxi” film series, written by Luc Besson; Yann Samuell's "Love Me If You Dare”; and Tim Burton's "Big Fish.” She garnered her first César Award, for Best Supporting Actress, for her performance in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's "A Very Long Engagement.” She went on to star in Ridley Scott's "A Good Year”; Michael Mann's "Public Enemies”; and Rob Marshall's "Nine,” the screen adaptation of the hit musical. Her performance in the last brought her Golden Globe and Critics' Choice Award nominations, and she also shared in a SAG Award® nomination for Outstanding Motion Picture Cast Performance.

In 2010, Cotillard was named a Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters, for her contribution to the enrichment of French culture. Born in Paris, she studied drama at Conservatoire d'Art Dramatique in Orléans.
