Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne are two of cinema's great humanists, crafting one extraordinary film after another about the plight of the working class. In TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT, the Belgian brothers hit a new high by telling the story of Sandra, a depressed factory worker who must convince her coworkers to give up their bonuses in order for her to keep her job. In a major departure from their habit of casting non-professionals and non-A-listers, the brothers chose Marion Cotillard to lead this film, and she turns in a subtle, empathetic performance that earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. Humble and complex, TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT is a fully-realized and emotional work about the little triumphs in everyday life.
