TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT, the latest masterwork of humanism from Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, two-time winners of the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Featuring a profoundly moving performance from Oscar® winner Marion Cotillard, the film was as a critical sensation at this year’s Cannes festival and was also featured at the 2014 Telluride, Toronto and New York film festivals.
Sandra (Cotillard) has just been released from the hospital to find that she no longer has a job. According to management, the only way Sandra can hope to regain her position at the factory is to convince her co-workers to sacrifice their much-needed yearly bonuses. Now, over the course of one weekend, Sandra must confront each co-worker individually in order to win a majority of their votes before time runs out. With TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT, the Dardennes have turned a relevant social inquiry into a powerful statement on community solidarity, once again delivering a film that is simple on the surface but alive with both compassion and wisdom.
