Grand central
While "Grand Central" is a decent enough name for the Lea Seydoux and Tahar Rahim starring romance, a more fitting title might be, "Love In The Time Of Nuclear Power."

But flying a bit more under the radar on the Un Certain Regard slate is "Grand Central," where she'll co-star opposite "A Prophet" star Tahar Rahim, in another romance that is throwing off some sparks.

Two of our favorite breakouts of international cinema of the last few years have been Tahar Rahim and Lea Seydoux. The former made a scorching debut in Jacques Audiard's "A Prophet," followed up swiftly with "The Eagle" and "Black Gold," while the latter won a César nomination for "La Belle Persone" and more acclaim for "Lourdes," before making a big American splash last year as Owen Wilson's love interest in "Midnight in Paris" and as the buxom assassin in "Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol." So it makes perfect sense that the two are being teamed up together.
