After sporting a classic Hollywood look for last year’s The Artist, Bérénice Bejo has taken on a very different project for her next feature. As reported over the summer, the actress has stepped in for Marion Cotillard on the next drama from the Academy Award-winning director of A Separation, Asghar Farhadi, and today we’ve got a few new details on the project.

These […]
