Tournées French Film Festival: Deux jours, une nuit (Two Days, One Night)
March 4, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Arguably contemporary cinema’s greatest chroniclers of the working class, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne here join forces with one of the most talented performers working today, Marion Cotillard. The actress plays Sandra, an employee at a solar-panel factory in an industrial town in Belgium who took a leave of absence after suffering a bout of crippling depression. Although eager to return to work, the wife and mother of two young children is told that management is offering each of her colleagues a 1,000-euro bonus if they vote to make her redundant. Sandra, still emotionally frail, faces the daunting task of meeting with each of her 16 coworkers over the span of a weekend to convince them why they should forgo the cash and let her resume her position at the company.
drama, 1 h 35 min — in French with English subtitles
