The Dardenne brothers’ Sydney Film Prize-winning, Cannes-selected Two Days, One Night stars Oscar-winner Marion Cotillard as Sandra, a woman in a precarious position. Her employer at a factory has given her colleagues a stark choice – to either receive a bonus or have Sandra return to work after a leave of absence. An initial ballot is not promising. The employer agrees to another vote, leaving Sandra one weekend to convince her colleagues to let her keep her job. Sandra visits them one by one to make her case. With this intriguing premise, the Dardennes fashion a very special film. Every interaction is so rich with possibility you can imagine each of these characters inspiring a film of their own.
“Cotillard’s performance is as fine a piece of screen acting as you will ever see” — The New York Times
