The film, written and directed by Woody Allen, tells the story of a writer who is granted the opportunity to visit the romanticized Paris of the 1920s. 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 multi-millionaire on a 24-hour odyssey across Manhattan.

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 was also seen in "Little White Lies," written and directed by Guillaume Canet.
