Belgium’s most celebrated filmmakers Luc and Jean-Pierre Dardenne unite with France’s biggest film star, Marion Cotillard, in this exceptionally powerful drama. Cotillard plays a worker who faces the axe from her job so that her colleagues can benefit from the extra savings and she has precisely two days to change their minds. But of course, as with all the best dramas, there are stark, difficult and morally complex choices at play as the film plays out its dilemmas with all the intensity of a modern day thriller. Cotillard is on record as saying how much she wanted to work with the Dardenne brothers and she has responded in some style with an extraordinary performance in the central role of Sandra.
