Multiple Palme d’Or winning filmakers, Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne, return to the screen with their latest masterwork Two Days, One Night. The Dardenne brothers are notorious for their intensely naturalistic films about lower class life in Belgium, and have an impressive portfolio of award-winning cinema including Rosetta (Palme d’Or, 1999 Cannes Film Festival), L’Enfant (Palme d’Or, 2005 Cannes Film Festival), Le Silence de Lorna (Best Screenplay, 2008 Cannes Film Festival), and The Kid with a Bike (Grand Prix, 2011 Cannes Film Festival).
Winner of the Golden Globe for Best Actress, Marion Cotillard (Midnight in Paris, La Vie en Rose) stars as Sandra, who returns to work after suffering from depression only to discover her colleagues have chosen to take a much-needed yearly bonus at the expense of her job. She has just one weekend to individually confront each co-worker and change their minds.
